Barbara of the Day; Barbara Lubliner
Allow me to introduce my friend and fellow Barbara,
She has an opening this evening at Carter Burden Gallery, 548 West 28th Street, 5-8pm
in her words:
I'm going-I hope to see you there too!
Here's what Barbara has to say about being Barbara of the Day;
How many Barbaras do you know? When my son was little, he told me he knew three Barbaras. Mommy Barbara, Barbara the babysitter, and Nick the Barbara. My son had just come back from a fun time sitting on his dad's lap getting his first haircut at the barbershop.
Words are tricky. It is not easy to distinguish, categorize, and understand the language of words. Conveying nuances and shades of meaning and complex ideas is challenging. As a visual artist I have always felt that words are my second language. My first language is pictures. I often find images the best way to express myself.
The story of Saint Barbara, my namesake, advocates for free self-expression and autonomy. In that spirit I am happy to share pictures of my artworks that speak for me.
I would love to know if they speak to you! You can let me know here
