Description 'Fleeting Glimpse', contemporary abstract tapestry by Jo Barker
British, 2018
Height 76cm, width 167cm
The vibrancy of Fleeting Glimpse demonstrates Jo Barker’s deep understanding of colour, tones and textures to create beautiful hand-woven tapestries. Here, her use of colour is challenging and exciting, combining soft pink with deeply pigmented blue and red yarns to create a work that emphasises the physical intensity of Barker’s work.
Appearing almost like a brushstroke across a canvas, Barker’s abstract design is formulated by taking photographs and drawings. These are then manipulated online and collaged with paint or ink and smudges of pastels, before she moves on to the slow construction of tapestry weaving. The saturation of colour and movement in Fleeting Glimpse ultimately provokes intrigue and emotional response through her masterful use of material and tone.
Artist/maker: Jo Barker (British, contemporary)
