AVAILABLE NOW: Northern Impressionism by Bob Barker

The new releases from Bob Barker’s Northern Impressionism collection are an intimate insight into the life of one of the UK’s best-loved artists. From climbing lampposts to revving his scooter as a teenager, Bob Barker’s touching memories are captured through both his expert use of light and shadow and scenes of romance and childlike fearlessness.

In an exciting first, the Bradford-based painter has also experimented with a circular composition to create a new perspective and challenge himself as an artist.

"You cannot put specifics on love; it is indefinable. It’s an indefinable romance, story and feeling…you just know."
