Sara Barker: Patterns 01/08/2013 - 15/09/2013
To celebrate this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival, EAF and Jupiter are delighted to be co-commissioners of Sara Barker’s first sculpture to be sited in a landscape. Barker, a Glasgow-based artist who is fast gaining international prominence, creates exquisite structures that echo architectural forms. Made of interlocking forms in glass, brass and stretches of aluminium painted by Barker, Patterns cascades over a plinth of polished concrete fleckled with marble. Its title Patterns, is taken from a poem by the early 20th century American writer, Amy Lowell.
