Phyllida Barlow uses common construction materials including plaster, plywood, foam and wire mesh to form large-scale sculptures that disrupt and subvert the spaces they inhabit. Despite their considerable size, Barlow sees her work as ‘antimonumental’. untitled: dunce (2015) was made for the artist’s 2015 solo exhibition Phyllida Barlow: set at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, which saw Barlow ‘turn the gallery … upside down’ in order to create what she has described as an ‘inside-out, back-to-front experience’ for her audience. Many of Barlow’s sculptures begin as works on paper.
