British artist Phyllida Barlow (1944 in Newcastle upon Tyne) has been creating astonishing sculptures and expansive installations for over fifty years. Using simple materials such as plywood, cardboard, fabric, plaster, paint, and plastic, Barlow’s physically impressive and materially insistent sculptures ask questions about our relationship to objects, and about objects’ relationships to us. Slipping between different registers of form and meaning as we try to understand them, her sculptures are like things caught in the process of becoming other things, things we might have seen before or may see in the future. With reproductions of numerous works never seen before, this major monograph of Barlow’s oeuvre presents more than one hundred works, offering an indispensable resource on the practice of this important British sculptor, who continues to be lauded by artists and critics for her work and for her influence on several generations of artists.
