Viet Nam leaves an open wound Barry struggles to appreciate. he's empathic to the wrongs inflected at the blameless no matter if from conflict or lifestyles itself. His nature is sculpting figurative artwork imbued together with his matters for humanity. He joins a non secular paintings colony within the Swiss Alps referred to as L’Abri the place Barry argues with the founder Francis Schaeffer over interpretation of scripture and wrestles together with his personal spirit over the contradictions. by no means at peace, he’s at odds with the economic paintings institution for commissions, and he displays on failed marriages after a close to middle assault he slightly survives. Barry unearths himself with honesty and a humanity which make this a compelling biography and a historic account of a representational artist, veteran and inventor.
