Sunrise/Sunset V

Barriball, Anna
Barriball's practice examines very ordinary everyday objects and materials, whose presence, function and resonance she scrutinises and records with an acute mixture of subtlety and rigour. Using often very straightforward means her work achieves a beguiling authority, which is so much more than the sum of its parts. 'Sunset/Sunrise V' - a pencil-on-paper rubbing of a decorative sunrise stained-glass window - is intensely worked. The colour and luminescence of the original object is replaced by an impenetrable graphite sheen.
