Artist Hedwig Barry
Year Created 2021

Created over a period of 2 years, this work on paper sees pastel marks act as darning threads, drawing together bits of splashing, dripping, brushing and blobbing in an act of visual repair. The work can be imagined as a map, or as a microscopic look at plant-like matter. It is reflective of Barry's moethod of compulsive surfacing;which acts as catalyst for an interchangable figure and ground in the work.
