Let's hear from Paul Barnes, who will be showing in the Project Room at Thinkspace starting this Saturday, January 8th: "I guess my closeness to nature and the slight isolation of growing up in the rural north of Scotland, along with my fascination of its ancient traditions rich in folklore and legend no doubt forms the basis of my work, no matter how much I try to escape it. It’s this inspiration, from a very early age, that fuels a big part of my imagination today." More after the jump . . .
