Vera Barnett
Fear of Pointed Objects (Aichmophobia)

circa 2003

$4,400

About

Vera Barnett has taken on a range of themes in her works, producing series of paintings inspired by phobias (as in this painting), famous artworks, and the written word. Barnett’s paintings, at once both still life and figurative, are first composed as hand-made maquettes in her studio. Once the scene is created – using sewn plastic and cloth, cardboard, tape, and found objects – Barnett paints her tableaus in a trompe l’oeil manner so real as to confound the viewer. The figures’ fabricated textures are rendered so convincingly, yet their presence and humanity are fully authentic.
