"still...Life" at Galatea Fine Art
Barbara’s new work is about fleeting stability in a fast changing world, and about the fragility of all living things. Imprints of netting suggest a semblance of life. They may be torn, cut, or left untouched. Set in an environment of hard edges and bold colors, they hold their own.
As Barbara was working on these pieces, she was struck by the way the techniques she used corresponded to what she wanted to express.
Life is fragile, and technology may enhance it, or confine and threaten, if not downright destroy it. The message lies in the interaction between both worlds.
