"Mostly I reduce the world to absurdity: in that form it is manageable."
Born in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1939 Barry Cleavin lived many years in Christchurch but now resides and works on the Otago Peninsula. He has produced a remarkable body of work chiefly as a maker of etchings although recent images have been digitally rendered. Usually figurative, sometimes surreal, and often cryptic the images expose a very individual commentary on the world of inhabitants.
