About Barry Williamson

Barry Williamson

I was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1943 and became fascinated with painting at an early age. Early on the family moved to Derry / Londonderry and through a friendship with one of the American servicemen who were stationed there I became interested in still life painting, particularly early American still life painting and trompe loeil ( to deceive the eye) paintings. My early influences were Dutch painting, Rembrant and Franz Hals then later the work of Jean Chardin and the work of Henri Fantin Latour. In recent years I have studied with current American realists like David Leffel and Sherrie McGraw and travel twice a year to continue my studies with them.

In 1961 I moved to work in Dublin and it was at this time that I had my first one man show in 1966 in the Molesworth Gallery in Dublin. Later that year I exhibited in the Oireactas, the prestigious National Art Exhibition and in 1967 with the Royal Hibernian Academy.

Returning home in Belfast I exhibited with the Royal Ulster Academy in 1970 and had another one man show in the Piccolo gallery later that year.

Since that time work as an organisational psychologist and management consultant in London dominated, but after my retirement I have returned to live in Ireland and have the time to paint seriously once more.

In recent years I have held one man shows in the Waterfront and the Cregagh Library galleries in Belast and the Flowerfield Art Centre in Portstewart.

I live on the Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland and recently Ive begun to paint the wonderful sea and coastline that is on my doorstep. My style has changed over the years and it is much looser than in my trompe loeil days, but I paint for the sheer enjoyment of trying to capture the beauty of everyday objects that are around us all the time but that we so easily fail to notice.
