Ted Barr art

Several fields are involved in Ted Barr’s Art. He has spent years learning, what later became an inspiration for his paintings: deep space astronomy, esotericism, Kabala, ancient Egyptian symbolism, numerology and the meaning of colors as an expression of different levels of energy.

His love of observing the sky and interest in celestial and human resemblances informed his art since the beginning. Painting the galaxies, the stars, supernovas and the human formations, made it possible for Ted Barr to explore the deepest connection between the energy of creation and his practice.

‘’ While painting the celestial sky I deal with questions about the origin of life, conception, pregnancy and birth that evoked the very first moment it all began. My art gives me a space to experiment with and connect all these worlds; the atomic and molecular space-time continuum, the star-galaxy, the galaxy cluster space-time realm. I use real tar, acrylic and wax and other organic matter that makes up the physical universe. In every one of my paintings there is a precise approach to using colors and forms.’’

In Ted’s art one can explore the deep curiosity and the human attempt to find answers about the meaning of our life. His art opens a dialogue about deep universal questions, wondering what the purpose of being is, and the beginning of everything we call Life.

Ted Barr attempts to answer visually the mystery of creation, connecting the visible with the invisible, and gathering the universe’s energy with his own language and technique.

In “Emerging from the White” Ted gives a shape to the elementary forces that made the universe; his images are archetypes that recall eternal symbols laying in our unconscious.

 ‘’In my art I use white as the representation of the everlasting journey of human life and the spirit-mind-body connection. White is a collective color. Its energy contains all other color frequencies.’’

Ted Barr was born in Constance, Romania and lives in Israel. He’s a painter, published author, teacher, lecturer and curator.
