Liz Barber’s mixed media paintings are layered bursts of energy inspired by nature’s movement. Forms and lines fall into a sea of emotion. Shapes and reflections drift into volumetric configurations.
Barber pours colors onto the canvas and, as things happen, she edits intuitively.The most common theme in her work is the ocean or natural elements and forms.
The shapes serve as anchors for the mind to stop and reflect upon. Distinctive color palettes evolve as the seasons change. Often, the work becomes a “happy accident.”
Barber’s paintngs are in numerous public and private collections. She has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad.
