Barbara Beyer

Barbara Beyer works with elementary materials and engages a great variety of working processes. She examines themes of change, balance, weight, motion and form in a dialogue of controlled sculptural interventions and provoked and invited accidents and interferences.

In her sculptures, prints and drawings she re-enacts and plays out formative actions, often on the threshold of building and inherent collapse. She is strongly drawn to minimal and archaic forms, natural and manmade and the evoking sensation of the sculptural object. Her finished work visibly contains traces of process and making, change and conciliation, imagination and play, which bring to mind our fundamental ability to shape and make, act and react, and to visually and haptically engage with the world
