A series of images that evoke the space between the ordinary and the uncanny.
There are unlikely encounters between animals, plants which curl and furl and scenarios encapsulated in jars. Some of these are playful imaginings whilst others touch on environmental concerns and anxieties we hold about changes in the natural world. Presented in part as a group of specimens to be looked at anew for clues they may hold.

Goldfields artist Kim Barter has a deep engagement with her environment. In this new body of work she investigates the way in which we surround ourselves and identify with the objects that we select, gather and arrange.
With a focus on the ‘Chair’ Barter examines the visual, emotional and practical importance of these objects. Objects that carry story….’It is fascinating to imagine what role chairs or a chair may have played in a private or public place over generations.’
‘BIG OBJECTS’ combines mono prints with three-dimensional wall based works and artist books.
