Phyllida Barlow

Phyllida Barlow creates large scale sculptures from a variety of low-tech, mass produced materials such as cardboard, wood, fabric, glue, plastic, and hardboard.

Barlow has been developing her approach over several decades, and many recurring elements such as the use of grids, fencing, stacks and collapsed tents, feature as elements of her visual language.

Once created the sculptures are often daubed with thick, treacle-like lashings of paint. In a career spanning 40 years she has continued to explore the effect of gravity on materials and the relation of the sculpture to the viewing space.

Rising from ground level of the Royal Festival Hall, up through the stairwell leading to the Clore Ballroom, a new work by the artist, Stack (2008), offers visitors the unusual opportunity to walk around the sculpture and view it from different levels and perspectives.
