Sara Barker

Sara Barker (born Manchester, 1980) was educated at Glasgow School of Art and University of Glasgow and lives and works in Glasgow. Her works are composed of irregular beams and poles that form approximations of overlapping rectilinear structures, often with sheets of glass intercepting the open spaces left between the metal and wood. Barker’s work has been featured in exhibitions at prestigious galleries across the UK, Europe and the US, as well as in public / museum exhibitions at Tate Liverpool; Saatchi Gallery; the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark and the Museum Morsbroich, Germany. She has recently been awarded solo exhibitions at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, and completed sculptural commissions for the CASS Sculpture Foundation and Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh.
