EYE WEEKLY, Apr. 10, 2008, v. 17, no. 27, p. 48
Winnipeg artist Daniel Barrow presents his newest work as part of the Images Festival. Entitled Everytime I See Your Picture I Cry, the piece concerns a garbage man who seeks to create a directory of the people whose trash he searches through. Unbeknownst to him, a serial killer dispatches everyone documented in his directory. Barrow claims the work is "darker and more political than anything I've done before," though he maintains a desire to touch people, to create a sense of intimacy on an individual level. This intimacy can be explained by Barrow's tendency to be more embarrassed for others than for himself, lending a frankness and truth to his work.
