Career

Barker was a student at Luton College of Technology and Art from 1957 until he left the course in 1959 and went to work on the assembly line at the Vauxhall Motors car factory in Luton for 18 months. While at Vauxhall, Barker realised the potential of sculptural qualities of industrially-finished objects, particularly in leather and chrome plated metal. The influence of chrome was a lasting one, leading Barker not only to apply chrome finishes but also to work primarily in polished cast metals for the rest of his life.

His first one-man shows were held at the Robert Fraser Gallery in 1968 and at the Hanover Gallery in 1969. Through the 1970s, Barker's work was exhibited at high-profile galleries in London including Anthony d'Offay and in mainland Europe at Bruno Bischofberger and the Baukunst Galerie. During the 1980s and 1990s, Barker was included in numerous surveys and international exhibitions of Pop Art. In 2002 a catalogue raisonné on his work was published.
