ARTIST STATEMENT

Barbara Bartos’ work explores the image in an experimental way using a variety of media, from audio-visual projects to site-specific environmental interventions, drawings, paintings and prints. Her current investigations revolve around what is an image, and how different forms of perception shape its meaning.

She tends to work by limiting herself to a few essential materials, each piece being the product of an elaborate generative process. The resultant works are hybrids between the artists’ conceptual framework and nature – expressed through the elements used. She attempts to strike a balance between human intervention and nature, creating works that hover at the threshold between her conceptual premise and the organic growth of the constituting materials.
