Barbara Colbert

Festival: 2017

Detailed charcoal drawings, which frequently use collage to add texture, and to enhance the stage set effect of animals, and birds in the local landscape. I occasionally use precious metal leaf, or print, to enhance the energetic images. Smaller work is in pen and ink, and lino cuts. I love the vitality of natural forms, swirling leaves, muscular beasts, and the themes of flight and feathers. All my work is based on myths and legends relating to animals, and birds, often in an historical context. I am also looking forward to the challenge of creating some specific artwork for the Red Lion Hotel!
