Heading should be invisible Anthony J Lester, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Member of the International Association of Art Critics, in the October 2000 Antique Collecting Magazine - Fine Art Issue:After more than 35 years involvement in the art world, I am now rarely enthused by the bulk of the thousands of paintings I see each year. Perhaps I have just become staid. However, the 'wow' factor returned in April this year when I viewed Bob Barron's solo show at the Mall Galleries, London. He makes extraordinary use of discarded packaging material from local supermarkets to produce collages that are elegant and alluring. Although in concept relatively simple, they resonate pulchritude and the muted palette imparts an air of restfulness...He obviously has a remarkable eye for what is aesthetically right, each completed work being a 'sophisticated', low-toned abstract, with many possessing something of a Japanese aura.
