Biography          CV          Statement

Barbara Robertson works across the fissure between analog and digital realms uniting centuries-old elemental materials like Japanese Kozo paper with video, sound, and installation. Using digital imagery sourced from commonplace materials like wood, concrete, and stone in combination with painting, collage, animation and sound, her work explores how we respond to and experience the ever-changing built environment.

Barbara Robertson is especially fascinated by the rapid growth and visual change in the city of Seattle, and the proliferation of oppressive building projects that have no relationship to their site. While the work is not a direct critique of that phenomenon, it is prompted by thoughts about living in an architectural environment based on efficiency instead of aesthetics or concerns with what makes a city desirable.
