David Barbarino

“Arcadia Remembered” (Part I & II) are two large scale pastoral paintings referencing Poussin’s versions of his painting: “Et in Arcadia ego”.

The work acts as a “memento mori” and juxtaposes the idea of Arcadia with the theme of “Becoming” and it’s implication of movement and evolution. At the moment of awareness, that nothing is constant in this world, except change or becoming, Arcadia becomes but a memory.

Born 1980 in Wiesbaden, Germany, David studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London (200-2005). In 2004, he exhibited at “Utopia Station”, curated by Hans-Ulrich Obrist in the Haus der Kunst, Munich. In 2005-06, he took part in the CCA Research Program in Kitakyushu, Japan. 2007 “Postmodern”,

After taking part in several large exhibitions, early on during his study period in London, David became increasingly weary of the cultural politics and favoritism that frustrated and “boxed in” artistic development. The research period in Japan then gave him space and time to explore ideas and pathways with peers and a chance to experiment with showing works in a critical and professional context.
