Viewing Sophie Barber at Alison Jacques

With a mesmerising tongue twister title, Alison Jacques is presenting How Much Love Can a Love Bird Love, Can a Love Bird Love a Love Bird, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Sophie Barber (b. 1996, St Leonards-on-Sea, UK). The exhibition follows Barber’s solo show at Goldsmiths CCA, London (2020), curated by Sarah McCrory, and focuses in on her lyrical paintings about love, affection and memory.

At first glance the subject matter appears dissonant – A-list celebrities rub shoulders with rolling valleys and of paradise; fragmentary allusions to the artist’s hometown on the East Sussex coast are brought in line with rough-hewn replications of iconic works from art history – yet as a whole, one witnesses a fervid imagination at work. Barber scrapes resonant imagery from the digital and real worlds, yet the materiality of her work with twisted canvases and layers of thickly worked paint reveal the artist’s passions.
