Anna Barriball

Anna Barriball (b. 1972, Plymouth, UK) lives and works in London. Studied at Winchester School of Art and Chelsea College of Art and Design. Barriball’s work hinges on minimal interactions with objects and often steps between the parallel languages of drawing and sculpture. Her interventions produce objects that combine a minimalistic rigour and the seemingly endless endeavour to make sense of the world of objects by empirical study.
