What is Barker Donnelly's Bread Van?

When I was growing up in rural Ireland, I spent my time trotting round the woods and streams, scuffling in the undergrowth, rolling around in mist, squeezing mud through my toes and getting to know the ferns, the foxholes and the fairy rings (approach these with CAUTION).

It was usually cold and wet, but it was freedom and escape.

Now, as an (alleged) adult, I still need – even more - to go out roaming the trees and bogs and mountainsides and get a blast of wild exhilaration.

And, that’s what I am capturing - for everyone who connects with my work - some messy chaotic nature to counteract the endless tarmac of ‘civilized’ life.

So - to answer the question - what is Barker Donnelly’s Bread Van?

Well, back then (when I was a child), every few days, Pat the Bread Man used to roll up in his van to keep us folk in the wilds supplied with our bread.

Inside the back door, the bread van had a wee hinged wooden counter and beyond that - shadowy shelves and trays and boxes full of all sorts of buns, breads, chocolate bars, birthday cards, electrical fuses, a live hen, washing up brushes, goat horns, lucky bags, a birds nest and who knew what else?

To us excited small people, swarming semi feral from the hedges and ditches, it was like a circus, an alchemist’s lab, a museum, ON WHEELS. It was full of arcane and wonderful surprises that couldn’t be found in the ordinary shop made of bricks.

Nowadays…for everyone who’s spent too long in concrete streets, in sterile offices, centrally heated bricks and mortar, is weary of the cars and lights and engines -

Barker Donnelly’s Bread Van delivers the same sense of delight, of fresh air, bursts of energy and vitality, creatures of the forests and mountains

… a window to the wild
