ROBBIE BARBER I Waco, Texas
Heavy Lifting, 2018

wood, paint, metal, found objects

I am interested in vernacular architecture. Vintage lap-board houses, mobile homes, and agriculture-related structures have become regional icons that ultimately tell the stories of their inhabitants and builders. This implied history interests me deeply. Recently, I was able to travel to the former East Germany, and expand my studies. “Heavy Lifting” is the first sculpture I have made from this experience, and specifically reflects the cultural juxtapositions that exist in that region.

Pricing is the sale price of the piece ONLY and does not include taxes and shipping costs. Shipping costs will be determined in consultation with the artist.
