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 sex–laden surfaces and bumps of her trashy, though costly materials, remain consciously ambiguous, abetted by humour.
Beneath the carefully–determined materiality is a pornology of obsessive detailing, repetition, excess and revulsion.
