Barbara Walker Sub Urban: New Drawings
British artist Barbara Walker makes drawings of people. She makes drawings of people using charcoal and a soft pencil. She makes drawings of men and women; huge, larger than life, floor to ceiling drawings rendered directly onto the wall. The article published here features drawings from the 2015 exhibition Sub Urban staged at the James Hockey Gallery, Farnham, Surrey, in which Walker examined contemporary stereotypes through the study of the dress codes and fashions adopted by young women.
