LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Michael Kohn Gallery presents ‘The White, The Black, The Kestrel’, an exhibition of original motorcycles and other new work by Ian Barry. The White emerges from Barry’s continued exploration of symbolism, power and speed, using motorcycles as the translating mechanism. The Kestrel and The Black, two of Barry’s earlier works from The Falcon Series are displayed along side new pieces.

The White is a departure from the familiar framework of customizing existing motorcycles; with the exception of the engine and tires, Barry formed The White piece by piece from blocks and sheets of raw material over a two year time period. Barry’s work is a study in the latent potential of engine as object. It is a study that constitutes an investigation into the psychology and symbolism of power, motion, and masculinity. These elements are present in the entire creative process for Barry: from drawing and sculpting to brazing, modeling, and machining his work into its final form.

Barry’s intimate and intricate practice depicts a restrained aesthetic condensed into an emotionally succinct and cerebral vision.

Ian Barry (b. 1973, Santa Cruz, CA). Barry’s early study of architecture and engineering led to his fascination with motorcycles. Barry moved to Los Angeles in 2001and is currently working out of his studio in Hollywood, California.
