Vestiges

Barb Whitney's avatar Barb Whitney

Vestiges features nine non-objective mixed media pieces installed in a grid, which were created concurrently through the acts of slicing, suspending and re-purposing fibers, including portions of the artist's own paintings. The body of work is fundamentally rooted in a persistent exploration of raw emotion, perception, the passage of time and strongly tied to the visceral quality of working with oil on canvas. The work creates an interaction with light and shadow in the space it is installed, as well as an interplay with the wall on which it is featured.
