'Pareidolia,' by Marc Barker, Oil on Canvas Painting

This 37" x 49" large horizontal framed oil on canvas painting by Marc Barker features muted multi-colors of grey, blue, green, copper and off-white with layered intricate shapes and patterns. Pareidolia is the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness. The painting is framed in a floating black wooden frame.

"My education was in mathematics, limnology and art. I revere nature and question my place within it, the Mystery, prismatic sunsets and sensuous memories exploring, surveying and photographing caves with their invented light, solitude, and deafening silence. I transform these experiences into psychologically contemplative subjects including shadow figures, asterisms, cloudscapes, political mixed media and abstractions." -- Marc Barker
