Silk Paintings

In this series Barbara departs from functional 3-dimensional mixed media to delve into expressions in 2 dimensions. While functional art has a definite place in Barbara’s heart, pure painting for its own sake is sometimes the only way to go.

Staying in the French Gutta Serti resist style of silk painting with the "Pure Silk" series, Barbara brings her unique perceptions of the the dynamic natural world of color, energy and form to the realm of pure paintings without any function other than to expose beauty, emotion and concept.
