My recent research has focussed on the distinctive aesthetic of post war Brutalist buildings. Using these buildings as a starting point has given me a structure to explore pattern, form, colour, line and space. It has been interesting, also, to reflect on the environmental and social aspects of Brutalist architecture, although ultimately it is the visual aspects which are of greater interest to me. For the ‘Lines of Enquiry’ exhibition some of this research was carried out jointly with Susie Reade, resulting in a confluence of ideas, sketches, prints, collages and artists’ books.
Marion Barron’s work will be on show in ‘Lines of Enquiry’ at the MacLaurin Gallery in Ayr from 2nd July to 6th August
