About Barnaby Hosking
By mixing media and drawing from wildly disparate art-historical movements, such as Minimalism and Romanticism, Barnaby Hosking makes work that defies easy categorization. He is best known for his mixed-media video installations, in which he projects videos onto paintings, objects, or variously shaped screens, creating evocative combinations of moving and still images, sequential narratives and single scenes. In Being T/Here (Wild Swimming) III (2010), Hosking confounds perceptions of depth and flatness by layering projected landscapes over painted ones on rich pieces of black velvet.
