Artist Sara Barker

The Fruitmarket Gallery - Artist Sara Barker

Exhibition: 12 March - 5 June 2016
An exhibition of the work of Glasgow based artist Sara Barker whose sculptures trace delicate lines in space. Operating on the boundary between sculpture, painting and drawing, her works incorporate rods of steel and aluminium, sheets of glass, and painted sections which draw a viewer into Barker’s curiously spatial imagination. Sometimes wall based, sometimes floor based, and sometimes moving from floor to wall and back again, Barker’s works inhabit space and also describe it. She is interested in how space may be imagined – in novels, in memory – and there is a quiet eloquence to her work which seems to hint at this kind of spatial envisioning.
