BjYarkon's award-winning artwork is rooted in his photographic captures of the real world. He then allows the subject and intent of each piece to suggest where along a stylistic continuum it needs to be; that is, from photo-realistic to what degree transformed/abstracted.
Yarkon's style of recent years has been said to fall into an aesthetic space between Realism and Abstraction; with intimate visual details, textures, patterns, and color; the overall effect is often painterly or impressionistic. Recent figurative and non-figurative series have been much transformed/abstracted.
Barry builds and prints his artwork digitally applying real-time refinements facilitated by many rounds of digital "sketch prints"– his workflow is iterative to best expose the emotional content he envisions within each piece – of course, serendipity is always welcome. Instances of his finished work are most often presented as 8-color dye-based giclée prints. For more detail, navigate to the Craft&Process page.
Yarkon's body of work has been labeled "contemporary outsider art" because he is self-taught, with an extensive hands-on skillset acquired during his graphic arts industry management career. He is currently a member of: the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center (NY), Garner Arts Center (NY), Studio Montclair Inc. (NJ), Rockland Center for the Arts (NY), and Arts Mid-Hudson (NY).
Barry takes great pleasure in the crafting of these signed, limited-edition prints. He has been exhibiting frequently since 2015 in galleries and art venues from the Lower-Hudson Valley: Woodstock, Saugerties, Kingston, Millbrook, Nyack, W. Nyack, Sparkill; to Montclair & Red Bank (NJ), and Goshen (CT); among others. His artwork hangs in professional offices, in private and corporate collections; as well licensed to websites and blogs.
