For over four decades Phyllida Barlow, born 1944, has made imposing, large scale sculptural installations using inexpensive, everyday materials such as cardboard, fabric, timber, polystyrene, plaster, scrim and cement. Her distinctive work is focused on her experimentation with these materials, to create bold and colourful three- dimensional collages that often contrast with the permanence and traditions of monumental sculpture.
Drawing and painting are important in Barlow’s practice, and central to an understanding of her sculptural work, embodying the same ambiguous and spontaneous nature.
Phyllida Barlow has had an important influence on younger generations of artists through her work and long teaching career in London art schools. At the Slade School of Fine Art, her students included Turner Prize-winning and nominated artists Rachel Whiteread and Angela de la Cruz.
