Past Exhibitions           Biography          CV          Statement

Barbara Robertson unites centuries-old elemental materials like Japanese Kozo paper, with new technologies like digital photographic printing, and commonplace materials like wood, concrete, and stone with animation and sound installation; in essence, her work explores how we respond to and experience the ever-changing built environment.

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.
