Anna Barriball @ Frith Street Gallery
18 March 2016 - 7 May 2016
Drawing is at the very centre of Anna Barriball’s practice. She uses it to explore the most mundane and overlooked objects, from door panels to windowpanes. By meticulously tracing their surfaces with pencil or ink, she magnifies incidental details and textures created by every day wear and tear resulting in works on paper that have a sculptural quality. Barriball’s drawings often seem to hide as much as they reveal, becoming more than just an investigation of domestic surfaces – she is interested in the invisible as much as the visible; the liminal space between boundary and threshold. Barriball is fascinated by windows and their function as barriers between the interior and exterior world. The largest work in the exhibition takes the form of a three-paneled drawing based on the experience of looking out through a window at night.
