Barbara Fix presents, “3D and MORE”, an exhibit on display in the Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery from October 2, through October 30, 2019. The exhibit is free and open to everyone during normal library hours.
There have been three phases in the development of Barbara’s art. The first was academic. After formal training in the history art – from carve art to the 20th century movements – she was fortunate to work closely with the preeminent South African historian Esme Berman, researching authoritative guides for gallery owners, curators and private collectors. She developed an eclectic taste, with favorite artists ranging from Milton Avery, Lucian Freud, Raoul Dufy, to Munch.
Drawn to the creation process itself, her second phase was devoted to sculpting, primarily using the lost-wax method to produce work in bronze, stone and plaster. Eventually, her love of color and intrigue with large-scale canvas, led her to the third phase in her development.
Barbara now opts for experimentation over her formal fine-arts training with a consequent versatility in media, style and size, and integrated shifts between realism and abstractism. She currently is drawn to large-scale works in acrylics augmented by additives to enhance the visual with a tactile quality, with a choice of color tied closely to the emotive nature of the subject. Barbara Fix lives in Larchmont, NY.
