Kireilyn Barber


Kireilyn Barber uses everyday experience and common or mundane subjects from daily life to work in series or around a system, which can be subject or time-based. She appreciates photography for its ability to immediately record the subject, but also for its capacity to depict the scene in a different way than human vision does. Her work experiments with random/chance events and systems and controlled tableaus and narratives, while routinely utilizing the visually compelling mix of materials and structures that suburban and urban environments provide. Her interests include all forms of visual expression, including experimental and documentary film, dance, literature, philosophy and cultural history. Recently she has expanded her artistic explorations to include video work, creating short, non-narrative pieces that investigate our perceptions of space, memory, loss and impermanence.
