Details

Valerie Barden studied at Yeovil College of Art, read Art History with the Open University and has been exhibiting professionally since 1994. Although painted in a figurative manner, Barden's work exemplifies the qualities of abstraction and flatness specific to modern painting and their subject matter place them in a contemporary context. This series of paintings is about people in galleries, in different public, indoor spaces, who are there for the purpose of looking at things. Valerie came to the subject simply by sitting for long periods in art galleries (and shopping centres) and thinking of pictures she could make of people standing or sitting fairly still in front of static paintings and objects, of the correspondence between viewer and exhibits, or simply figures as contrasting shapes against interesting architecture. Curated by Deborah Wood of The Art Room.
