Beauty is influenced Cassandra Barney’s love of the narrative aspect of portraits and by art of the 16th century. Furthermore each of Barney’s truly unique paintings is a frank, compelling and often mysterious portrait of the “muses” of our daily lives. Equally as important, feminine charms of her characters have captured the attention of the sophisticated fine art collector.
“As a young girl, I visited museums around the world with my father, collecting postcards adorned with 16th century art. Exploring these simple images captured my imagination, unlocking a world of discovery. I love the art of storytelling, the layers of symbolism, and would create my own stories for these quiet women, making the paintings my own. Today I paint portraits that share my passion for storytelling while revealing my personal journey of transition and discovery.”
Barney’s images capture the souls of heroines, everyday women who have found strength and personal victory in their diverse experiences.
