Barbara Bullock is a "maker of art", making things in the abstract, some of which lies between
paintings and sculpture, working in the medium of acrylic and collage. Her very contemporary creations, centered on black identity, reconcile ancestral aesthetics and Western ideals, bringing the two together, showing that they can live in harmony. The images in Bullock's art are fabulous inventions of life forms and figures, set in a vibrant relationship to richly patterned backgrounds. She creates a personal form of storytelling drawn from African American culture and spirit. The final work and the process of making art weigh equal in importance.
