Rosalind Barker

Barker’s drawings and sculpture interpret the transience and traces of human presence and absence. By repetition and assemblage, her scale varies from miniature to human life size. She works with the materiality associated with the body, dust, hair, bone or delicate paper as metaphor. Her aim is to create a hesitant ripple in your everyday.

Rosalind is an artist and curator. In 2016 she graduated with distinctions from MA Drawing at Wimbledon, University of the Arts London. In 2017 she was selected for The London Group Open and 31 Celsius at ASC Gallery. Rosalind has also exhibited in London at C4RD, The Wimbledon Centre for Drawing, Gallery Different, The National Gallery and as Pure Arts Drawing Prize winner at The Strarta Art Fair, The Saatchi Gallery.

Working intuitively she has generated new work as invited artist on site-specific projects with The London Group in 2017 and twice in 2018.
