Barry Hazard is an artist in New York City and Boston. He holds a MFA from the School of Visual Arts (2008), a BFA from Tufts University (1989) and a Diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (1988). He is an artist, construction supervisor and youth worker.
Barry makes sculpture-paintings and two-dimensional pictures using a heavy relief. His work incorporates landscape themes and narratives that focus on familiar subjects of beauty. Recent images consist of mountains tops, oceans, rivers, deserts, glaciers and forests. The work embraces any inferences of environmental conflicts associated with a contemporary landscape. The landscapes are derived and composed from multiple photographs pieced together to make a unique semi-fictional space.
Barry has displayed his work in group and solo exhibitions including the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) HallSpace Gallery (Boston) Holy Cross College (Worcester, MA) Exit Art (NYC) Jack the Pelican and Like the Spice Gallery (Brooklyn, NY). His work has been reviewed in the Provincetown Arts Magazine, Art New England, Brooklyn Rail, and the Boston Globe.
