Artist Statement


Barry is a native of Tipperary town but has now based himself in the unique landscape of the Burren in Co Clare.

After having received his Degree in Sculpture from the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork in 2004, he had numerous shows before gaining a Masters Degree in Fine Art (Virtual Realities) from the National College of Art and Design.

He has taken part in numerous exhibitions and has works in Private Collections both in Ireland and Europe.


Artist Statement

Not since Victorian times have science and scientific exploration captured the public’s attention, nor has it been more controversial. The world is at a juncture; Global Warming, Economic and Cultural disaffection. Has scientific evolution contributed to the situation we now find ourselves in? Can science bridge these gaps and aid in the solution to such problems?

“Charles Quartermaine is a scientist, explorer, artist. He received his Doctorate in Quantum Anthropology from Harvard in 2008. He is best known for the discovery of the Higgs Boson Field, which not only confirmed the multi-verse space time theory but opened the door (literally) to inter-dimensional travel. Currently based at CERN in Switzerland, where the field was first detected. Charles Quartermaine now leads a small team of explorers to these alternate universes to find out, if any, the effects that these higher levels of existence have on our own world. Are the problems and issues faced in our world a by-product of a bigger dimensional or universal issue?

“His work deals with current research in Cosmology and Quantum Physics. Trying to reveal the very essence of our world. To challenge what we think we know to be true. Influenced by Victorian Plate Photography and the era itself Charles displays his work believing that we all possess this sense of shared history” 

The Victorians were impressed by science and progress, and felt that they could improve society through discovery in the very same way they were advancing society through technology. Is it possible that our outlook on life and the world can be changed by looking back? To a time when science was met with romanticism and wondrous excitment. Can a more nostalgic perspective open a door to an accessible modern relationship with science?
