Statement

Biography

Siobhan Barr's work embodies the spirit of British humour; with tongue in cheek phrasing and cutting irony she assesses the modern cultural landscape, primarily in work utilising text as the  medium of communication. She "advocates fun art" and challenges social preconceptions within the art world that only the solemn and serious is great and valuable.

Barr lives and works in Winchester and London. She holds a BA in painting from Winchester School of Art, and has held 2 long-term residencies, since graduating in 2006. She is a founding member of a successful artist-lead studio project and has exhibited in several major UK cities, including London Art Fair 2011, prior to her selection to exhibit with the WW Gallery (London) at 54th Venice Biennale 2011.
