Permaneo De Mortalitas Semino
Artist Sukhi Barber was born in England and, from a very young age, she was always interested in pursuing her artistic passions. After attending art school and completing her formal training in sculpture, she traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal, and spent twelve years studying what she describes as the “timeless quality of peace and balance that she found in the art of Asia.”
Barber’s human figures are a fascinating blend of her training in both sculpture and philosophy. Through her creative practice, she intends to bridge the cultures of East and West in which the peaceful essence of Buddhist tradition sits calmly in unison with the patterns and designs of a traditional bronze casting artform.
In her sculptures, Barber produces a rich visual beauty with a compelling draw to Buddhist traditions. She says that the pieces are meant to explore “themes of hidden potentials, and the transcendence of our limiting view of a solid reality.” As viewers, we are instantly drawn in to the captivating displays, and then we quietly progress into a reflective mindfulness that travels beyond the surface of the bronze.
