Visible Invisible II

Colin Barnes is a London-based artist, known for visually-fun works inspired by the graphic forms of comic books and graffiti. 

Visible Invisible II depicts Mammy Two Shoes from the Tom & Jerry cartoons with a simple outline placed where her face would have been had the cartoon chosen to show it.

By leaving the observer to fill in the blanks, Barnes invites us to consider the nuanced micro-aggressions that have permeated black representation in popular culture, showing how seemingly innocuous moments can enforce harmful racial stereotypes.

Visible Invisible II is a giclee print with silkscreen glazes. From a limited edition of 30, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist.

    About the artist

    Colin Barnes' development as an artist began long before his formal art education at the Camberwell College of Art. A wealth of experience outside of the art world imbues his work with a freshness of perspective that resonates with an unexpected range of people.

    Stylistically inspired by graphic forms of comic books and graffiti, Barnes’ work is disarmingly fun. Barnes’ art is particularly accomplished in capturing a moment of oddness amongst the bright colours, a slightly unnerving aspect that pulls us into the piece.

    Barnes’ most recent collection is fascinated with the more nuanced and open-ended questions about black representation in popular culture. Framing his point of view as more inquisitive than accusatory whilst being visually fun is contemporary commentary at its best. There’s always a jolt of humour in his work, returning the power of the piece to his own perspective.

    Barnes’ mediums are ever-evolving. His curiosity and creativity can take the form of print, oil paintings and modern art sculptures. We’re excited to see what he does next.
