About the edition
Studio Voltaire is pleased to launch an exclusive new print edition by Phyllida Barlow CBE RA.
This special fundraising edition has supported Studio Voltaire's major new commission act at Highgate Cemetery by Barlow in 2021. Picturing an anomalous, vibrantly coloured structure, the edition is based on a drawing produced just prior to Barlow’s major solo exhibition cul–de–sac at the Royal Academy in 2019.
Barlow often describes sculptures as "dumb and silent and still" – even a nuisance, as a viewer must walk all the way around it. The same could be said for a street barrier, which Barlow frequently references in her sculptural installations and works on paper.
