Per Barclay, an art historian, is also a sculptor and photographer. His artistic career began in Italy where he perfected his art studies in Florence, Bologna and Rome. In a conceptual approach, Barclay uses varied media (photography, sculptures, objects, installations) in order to bring out is main preoccupation: space. He also seeks to resolve some questions about the relationship between the image, the work of art and reality.
