The work of Adam Barker Mill examines the physical and experimental properties of light, an interest, which originated from his childhood fascination with the caves located in his hometown of Somerset. Barker Mill’s sculptures revisit his concerns for light, which he initially began working on in the sixties. His works have a deceptively simplistic appearance, allowing the viewer to maintain an idealistic visual, acutely unaware of the carefully structured designs, which generate, manipulate and modulate light. Barker Mill’s sculptures are highly engaging, the various light effects and constantly changing experience, is due to the viewers positioning, natural light conditions and in specific works, the option to interact with the works; actually altering the light intensity and colour for yourself.
Often the effects of Adam Barker Mill’s works are subtle and surprising, perceptual distortion is a common platform of discussion, which undoubtedly adds to the enticing elements within his beautiful and precise sculpture.
