"Heinz 57"
by sabine7 / November 9, 2005

Barry Lorne is a Calgary painter who moved from Lancaster, England when he was twelve years old. Since then he has carried with him a sense of cultural displacement, a need to belong that is applied to his work. Lorne’s current paintings, mostly oils and bronze leaf in combination with tar or melamine on Baltic birch, represent his memories of growing up in a northern mill town. A series of motifs is repeated throughout the paintings: dogs, chairs, antlers, targets – some of which symbolize the tenement life left behind, and others perhaps the difficulty fitting into a new one.
