The work of artist Barry Sparkman

In a career that spans nearly 25 years, Barry Sparkman continues to explore the creative possibilities of nonobjective paintings and prints in his new home of Phoenix, Arizona. His body of work reflects an intense interest in and respect for nature in all of its forms. Having lived in such diverse environments as Tennessee, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Texas, South Carolina, Montana, and Florida, he consistently absorbs the look and feel of each place, storing a plethora of rich and differing images for use in the making of abstract works of art.
