The British sculptor Phyllida Barlow cbe ra (b. 1944) studied at Chelsea College of Art (1960–63) and the Slade School of Art (1963–66), where she later taught for much of her career. Since retiring from teaching in 2009, she has been elected a Royal Academician, created new work for Tate Britain and the Royal Academy, had numerous solo shows and last year represented Britain at the Venice Biennale.
Barlow’s large-scale sculptures eschew serenity, balance and beauty in favour of instability, obstruction and oddness. They invade the spaces they inhabit, instead of neatly complementing them. Her use of inexpensive everyday materials – concrete, plywood, cardboard, plaster, fabric and paint – suggests that her works are a double act of recycling: both of the materials she uses and the images she draws from her memory.
