We are excited to return to NADA Miami (newartdealers) who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, with a dynamic presentation of three women artists; Sara Barker, Sekai Machache and Ilana Halperin.
These new works by Barker (sarbarkerr) introduce a raw response and more intimate scale than previously seen in past exhibitions.
Watch her talk about them during her exhibition `undo the knot` at CAMPLE LINE (link in bio).
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.
Solo exhibitions include: undo the knot, Cample Line, Dumfriesshire (2021); All Clouds Are Clocks, All Clocks Are Clouds, Leeds Art Gallery (2020); The faces of Older Images, Mary Mary, Glasgow (2017); CHANGE-THE-SETTING, The Fruitmarket, Edinburgh and Ikon, Birmingham (2016).
