About this Event

Anything Is Anything features paintings, installations, sculptures and mixed-media work. This entire new body work was created in 2019 and is focused on identity and the Black experience within the U.S. barry's work created entirely with house paint were created in the wake of events happening in the political landscape, results of police brutality and social injustices and were reimagined on canvases. Some imagery features bold colors to combat the dark portrayal of Black people within the media. Another combines paintings with found objects to create new narratives using glass, fans, wood and more as a comment into the unseen and underrepresented. Sculptures feature broken crowns crushed and submerged into volcanic ash and ember.
