    "Polly Barton: Dare, Revel, Dive"

    • Artists:
    • Polly Barton

    Past Show: Jul 2-31 2021

    The show marks a decisive break from almost 40 years of working within a traditional framework, yet still pushing boundaries for contemporary innovation. The three word title corresponds to three distinct, yet connected, bodies of work including; large ikat weavings with warp designs (Dare), pastel color fields on paper (Revel), and handwoven linen paper with mixed media added (Dive), which Barton refers to as “weaving my own paper.”
    Barton explains, “This show spans five years and three bodies of work, none of which would be possible without the other; the four ikat banners are a departure in their political and calligraphic imagery; the pastels on paper are joyous; and the woven paper with mixed media added, are emotional and rebellious. The immediacy and satisfaction in the tender tugs at memories which surface with new materials and processes surprise and deepen my commitment to the studio and to the meditative repetition in work.”
