Barbara McKay & Marilynne Barnes

Perceptions features the works of two artists whose forms, shapes, colours, lines and playful use of paint, are created from their responses to nature, from the environment and the human form.

Barbara McKay’s paintings, drawings and artist books are based on her holistic view of the environment, wildlife and the impact of climatic change within the New England region. Marilynne Barnes is captivated with movement and the human form; her female forms are sourced from memory and created in her imagination. Barnes’ paintings, drawings and sculptures amplitude the realistic to abstract.
