My name is Richard Frederick Barber, B A. SLC Hons, in Fine Arts. I was born
in Windsor in the U.K. in 1942,. I'm a member of the Shenyang & Liaoning
Institute of Fine Arts and I had a studio in Anshan City where lived for five years.
Anshan City's in the Northern Province of Liaoning China. I'm was a Guild member of the Artrom Gallery Guild where I won membership with a landscape Painting "The Mundons" which took fist place in an international New landscape 2007 Competition.
Since this was posted I retuned to the UK in 2009, but this year 2014 I decided that I missed living in China. The UK was not what I really wanted to do. So have returned to the city in China that I fell in love with. Anshan. Here I feel at home and it give me what my family motto stands for " Ago vita per Fanaticus" ( Live life with enthusiasm ). it's also what I feel in my art, "Enthusiasm".
I work mainly in oils, but do sometimes work
in other mediums such as watercolor and acrylic.
I have in the past worked in encaustic's and I have also sculpted in wood,
stone (marble, Portland stone ) ,clay and flour dough.
I do not stick to any one particular subject as I think the artist should try and expand their knowledge, not only in subject matter, but also
in their style and medium they work in.
