Edith Pargh Barton

Edith’s textile based sculpture and paintings display a distinct psycho-social element. Talisman, totems and taboos are recurring theme’s imbuing a sense of mystery and otherness into her work. The textile sculptures are hand constructed from fabric and embroidered and embellished with thread. Standing alone or in familial groups, they are at once both intriguing and humorous, leading the observer to wonder at their inner thoughts and meaning….
Edith’s paintings explore the natural man-made ecology of the world we live in. Reflecting the complex web of relationships, which constitute reality, mourning what has past and gone but anticipating the future yet to come; capturing our dreams on the brink of reality.
