54 ARTIST PROFILE Barbara Mink

Just for Fun, 2019, acrylic, 122 x 229 cm

Barbara Mink

T

hrough a varied artistic practice Barbara Mink has come to happily rest in a world of colour, texture and energy; creating works which pitch textured organic abstractions alongside architectonic lines.

There is a sense of constant balance in Mink’s compositions, seen through perfectly paced levels of calm and tension, geometry and abstraction, form and space. This comes from her skilled ability to create and counterbalance formal oppositions of line and colour, light and dark, surface and depth – meeting the vibrancy of the paint with a restraining force or structure. Increasingly she explores processes that set different qualities of colour, pigment and texture against each other.

Although having grown up surrounded by art, Mink’s journey to become an artist herself was not a direct one as she navigated various careers while remaining immersed in the lively arts scene of Buffalo and Ithaca, New York, where she lives. When she finally began painting, many different styles, subjects and mediums were applied to her canvases before becoming comfortable with a practice of her own. Since then her work has flourished, and her solo shows have been frequent over the last decade across the US. barbaramink.com barbara.mink@gmail.com
