"Ian Barry occupies a unique position, working at the nexus of art and engineering, exploring ideas about aesthetics and functionality that blur the boundaries of both worlds, and softening the hard distinctions between them.  The motorcycle is his chosen medium, but his attention has evolved rapidly from the pioneering and oft-copied Bullet of 2007, which is an exceptional motorcycle, to the irreproducible and highly conceptual mechanical-sculpture the White of 2015.  His Falcon motorcycles ask questions about the relationship of machines, art, and humans addressed nowhere else in the world of motorcycles; his peers in this exploration are usually found in literature, cinema, and the traditional ‘fine’ arts. Falcon motorcycles are demanding of their viewer, and easily misunderstood as simply ‘art custom’ machinery, but in his evolution as an artist, Barry’s work veers into a category not yet defined."
