Object Description

Fleeting Moment is typical of Jo Barker’s intricate tapestries that explore the qualities and patterns of light. The deep inkiness of the brushstroke texture is dappled with flecks of vibrant colours: red, blue and pink, against a pale background. Here, Barker captures the transient and complex nature of light, painstakingly weaving it on a simple frame loom over several months.

Starting by taking photographs and drawing designs, she then creates collages and manipulates images online, capturing gestural movement and dense colour. Fleeting Moment ultimately combines master craftsmanship with exhilaratingly abstract creativity, allowing her to use colour and materials to convey ideas, feelings and experiences. In this case, the wind and mist of the Scottish countryside, where Barker likes to walk, is translated into woven image.
