The Elizabeth Barton Gallery

Mission Statement

Welcome to the Elizabeth Barton website,, my journey of the imagination. It’s dedicated to inspiration, and musery in all its forms. Musery is the pursuit of creativity, allowing the creative impulse to flower and lead the soul where it will.

When asked for the way to fight back against the dehumanising machine that parades as culture, the ‘gnostic demon’, Terence McKenna answered, “BY CREATING ART”.

Terence McKenna also said, “The artist’s task is to save the soul of mankind and that anything less is to dither while Rome burns. Because if the artist, who is self selected for being able to journey into the Other, if the artist cannot find the way, then the way cannot be found”.

Creating art is a journey into the Other, without map or compass, just the creative directive of an inner flame that humanists and metaphysicians can only theorise about. It is one thing to dream, it is another thing to harness your dreams into a vehicle that enables you to fly.

This then is my journey, a celebration of life in art, and exploration of voice through a language I am learning, and will still be learning in years to come.
