Kim Barter, the context of my work is my personal need to communicate without words.
My work is often about the human condition,
where human injustice can create the alienation, fear, illness and the poverty of spirit that inequality brings.
Currently, my work has been about the natural world,
A world to me, in crisis.
To allow my work to convey, my truth, I make many camping trips each year, to ‘be in the landscape’,
to observe its power, beauty and fragility.
I fill many sketchbooks with random gestural drawings, paint splotches, rubbings and notes.
My prints are layered with colour, texture and line.
I make a number of etching and carborundum plates
and my print process is one of intuition and random placement.
