Exhibition: Sara Barker: All Clouds are Clocks, All Clocks are Clouds
07 February 2020 - 31 May 2020
Venue Leeds Art Gallery
Sara Barker’s sculptures delicately trace lines in space. Operating on the boundary between sculpture, painting and drawing, her work incorporates a combination of industrial and sculptural materials together with collage, painting and craft techniques, to create unique forms which draw viewers into a curious spatial imagination.
As part of the new exhibition, Barker present a major body of new ‘tray-trench’ works alongside key works from the Leeds Art Gallery collections that continue to influence her practice, including pieces by Prunella Clough and Shelagh Cluett. The conversation between works highlights a common language between painting and sculpture that is visceral, tactile and elemental in form.
The exhibition will be supported by a series of talks and events.
