BARBARA PHELPS - ABOUT ME

My work is influenced by my background in theatre, is usually conceptual and 3D in structure and has focused on themes of personal identity, loss, memory and space.

My installation for 'Narrative Thread' was inspired by seeing a 1930's metal cot outside a junk shop which appeared lost and abandoned and I felt compelled to rescue it. It has since become the focus for my work in which I am examining how we seek to protect our children with varying success with a framework of security and love.
