Lynne Barwick
Born 1969, Canberra, ACT

The invocation of sexuality in Lynne Barwick's fleshy, vinyl and rubber fetishisms, is more an allusion than a central doctrine.  Of more particular concern to her, is the process by which theory and meaning become objectified in works of art.  In this context, the sexladen surfaces and bumps of her trashy, though costly materials, remain consciously ambiguous, abetted by humour.

Beneath the carefullydetermined materiality is a pornology of obsessive detailing, repetition, excess and revulsion.
