RZ McCartan Barn Wood Art

Works of Art from Reclaimed Materials

Artist Statement

As a child, there was no better place than my Grandfather’s farm. I remember the aroma, color and textures, at his barn, and how I fell in love. To this day, each piece of reclaimed barn wood takes me back to my favorite place. When I paint, I reflect on the fragment of Kentucky history, in front of me, a piece of wood that is potentially older than the state itself. Each piece is from a structure that I am certain had immeasurable sentimental value to the people on whose land it once stood. As the barns are taken apart, so is a piece of the owner’s heart. But, to know that the wood can be saved and given a new life, through painting, brings me such happiness. I hope you will enjoy it, too.
