Phyllida Barlow @ Hauser & Wirth, London
31 August 2021 - 18 September 2021
For more than 50 years British artist Phyllida Barlow has continuously challenged the conventions of sculpture. This presentation of the artist’s work includes a large-scale sculpture and a series of twelve works on paper.
Drawing is an integral part of Barlow’s practice; she draws before, during and after creating sculptures, both as a means of developing a working process and to visualise ideas which are later translated into three dimensions. Drawing provides the artist with the freedom to improvise and engage directly with materials. The resulting works are fluid and dynamic. She works across media, using pencil, acrylic and watercolour, always with the intense physicality evident in her sculptural work.
