The singular oils of Malcolm Baroway are indicative of an artist both skilled and learned, who uses both his abilities and life experiences to shape his wonderful work. Baroway has a broad education in the arts, and the depth of his understanding is evident in what he presents. His canvases are reminiscent of the turn of the century Post-Impressionists, and evoke a joy in the painting process as well as a symbolism prevalent then and as pertinent now. While the chosen subjects are varied, the artist’s brushstrokes are consistent, with strong contour lines, a Fauvist palette, and an Expressionistic dynamic. There is always a fine sense of balance, as well, as if the artist senses the exact moment when his painting's essence is achieved.
While Malcolm Baroway has been exhibiting regularly for the past decade in renowned galleries in the American Midwest, his works are definitely European in style, displaying an inherent understanding of perspective, light and color and creating a dialogue with the major art historical trends of the last century. They appear today in more than one hundred and fifty collections nationwide.
