The Fish Series, mixed-media collages
Barbara McIntyre’s website Barbara McIntyre’s mixed-media collages explore her fascination with the sea and the creatures therein. Her desire to make works that house imagery of fish, birds, texts and patterns alike stems from her early childhood.
Additional elements of the Fish Series lend themselves to surrealism and stream-of-consciousness compositions. McIntyre works in steps, where the hand-colored background papers softly set the stage for collaged dream-like imagery to begin narrating a story via placement. Color and form remain strong devices for contemplation, as her fresh palate reflects both the ocean she has come to know so well and the land she lives on.
