Barker’s work, influenced by literature, poetry and language reimagines landscape painting as sculpture. Blurring the boundaries between figuration and abstraction, through a process of decomposition of the natural environment, she creates work that sits between imagined and physical spaces. In this new series of works, traces of the human figure and human-made objects are found within hazily defined landscapes. Unlike previous work that required assistance from fabricators, these handmade works in their modest scale and intimate, sketch-like process, introduce a new rhythm to Barker’s practice.
