Berry is a Doncaster based artist who has undertaken a solo painting tour of England in order to produce this current body of large scale paintings which primarily focus on the ever-changing British landscape and to tell the story of what has remained and why. But Berry’s work goes much deeper than this; he creates his work in response to each locations distinctive atmosphere, often working ‘en plein air’ in order to truly capture the essence of a particular location. His travels are as much a part of the process as the application of paint and other materials to his canvas. 

In November 2016 Berry was a resident artist at Millfield and spent time working with pupils and running workshops for them. We are very pleased to be welcoming him back to Millfield for this exhibition and seeing some of his responses to our local landscape.

Poet Ian Enters on Adam Berry's work
At the Private View for the Adam Berry exhibition we welcomed novelist and poet, Ian Enters, to perform some of his poetry in the gallery. Enters met Berry in Doncaster where Berry is based and their meeting transpired into Enters writing poems in response to Berrys' paintings and Berry even producing artwork in respose to Enters' poetry.
