Valerie Barden

Contemporary figurative oil painting

Valerie was born in Buckinghamshire in 1938; she studied at Yeovil College of Art and later read Art History with the Open University. She lives in Devon with her husband Robert Organ.

Barden has been exhibiting professionally since 1994; Piers Feetham Gallery, London; Salisbury Playhouse; Town Mill, Lyme Regis and the Brewhouse, Taunton. Her work is held in the Bridgeman Art Library.

These paintings fit into the genre known as paintings of ‘Modern Life’ first explored at the end of the C19 and beginning of the C20 and which has engaged many artists since.

Although painted in a figurative manner, the qualities of abstraction and flatness specific to modern painting, and the subject matter place them in contemporary context.
