BRIEF ABOUT: Since the 1960s, Phyllida Barlow (born 1944 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is a British artist living and working in London) has produced a unique and dynamic body of work focused on the investigation into materiality, form, and process in the wake of the Minimalist and Post-minimalist art movements of the 60s and 70s.

     Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Barlow’s work was characterized by a continual free flowing process of production and deconstruction in which materials were constantly used, recycled and re-appropriated into subsequent projects and objects.

     The artist works with diverse materials on a size and scale that creates massive organic shapes and accumulations that directly relate to the urban environment. Varied materials are central to her artistic practice and have included such items as carpet felt, polythene, rags, rubber tarpaulin, bitumen, upholstery foam, handkerchiefs, sellotape, paper, timber, silk, foil, canvas, and plaster.
