Barrett Edwards' representational and abstracted oils capture attention by inviting viewers into a scene. Her ability to infuse her landscapes with warmth, color and light offers an emotional connection, sometimes peaceful, sometimes energetic: she reminds her collectors where they have been or where they yet want to go. Expressively wielding a paintbrush or palette knife, Barrett layers paint upon paint, sometimes with thin, almost transparent coverage, and sometimes in impasto.
Born in Chicago, Barrett is a third generation artist whose award-winning work first drew attention in France. Her introductory exhibition at Hotel Talleyrand, Paris, sold out. That success was followed shortly by exhibits at the historic Salon d'Autumne at the Grand Palais in Paris; the Grand Prix International de Peinture de Deauville, and the Grand Prix International de la Cote d'Azur. She has exhibited at Galerie Jean Lammelin (Paris), Atelier Melusine (Switzerland), and her work has been published in a German calendar.
Spending her summers in the Colorado Rockies for the past decade, Barrett has developed a love of plein air painting, which she credits with bringing new energy and effectiveness to her studio paintings. She is a popular art show jurist and continues to help others through her popular oil painting workshops in Provence, Tuscany, the Bahamas, and throughout the US.
Barrett's signature comment is, “A really good day is one with nothing planned—except painting,” for which we, at Huff Harrigton Fine Art, are very grateful!
