SARAH M.L.A. BARKER
Lemon Tree in a Rose Garden
Driven by the exploration of the concept of all things being interconnected, Sarah Barker’s artwork is made up of simple multiple forms creating a larger whole experience.
Sarah Barker is currently working on a Plant Spirit Series. Rather than painting the outer appearance, Sarah experiences each plant from the soul level. Her work consists of complex detailed marks painted in several layers on top of each other, leaving open spaces that reveal a multitude of marks beneath.
Sarah was born, raised and educated in Los Angeles, CA. She received a MFA in painting from Otis Parsons in 1988. She then continued her exploration and education when she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1988.
In 1989 Sarah began a working relationship with a revered paint maker refining her talents and increasing her technological knowledge; especially of synthetic polymers and pigments. Sarah is on the Brooklyn time line with the galleries and events that forged the next wave for a community dedicated to reaching out through the arts, nationally and globally.
Sarah moved to New York's Hudson River Valley region in 2005, bringing forth a renewed connection with nature and the intrinsic qualities that connect us.
