About The Artist

T. S. Eliot is a major influence on Oliver Barratt's work due to his ability to encapsulate and transform an ephemeral, fleeting or melancholic moment into something momentous. Such transformations take place in Barratt's work; where fragmented and incomplete narratives solidify into form, shapes drift into one another and surfaces belie meaning. Barratt writes of his sculptures:

“they are elegant and clear, tense and lithe, simple and essential, quiet and enigmatic. Forms are paired down, on the fringes of minimal, but retaining a romantic, emotional sincerity.”
