Although the initial inspiration for a painting might come from a fleeting experience with music, nature, or a memory, Barringer methodically crafts his compositions over an extended period of time. Putting a premium on craftsmanship, he builds his surfaces up carefully by layering a variety of mediums, including acrylics, modeling paste, charcoal, graphite and pastels, stacking areas of pure color atop gestural brush marks and geometric forms.
"It ALL seeps in,” Barringer says describing his many influences, which include poets, novelists, jazz music, the quilts of Gee’s Bend, photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, ancient cave art, and the natural forms he has encountered while walking through nature or traveling to such places as the Alaskan wilderness and the California redwood forests.
His work is included in many prominent collections, including that of Walt Disney, Georgia Institute of Technology, Ritz Carlton Hotel, IBM Corporation, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Warner/Fidelity investments, among many others.
