Entitled 'Hypnotic Fragilities' this series of wireframe sculptures by Glasgow-based artist Sara Barker embraces a minimalist visual aesthetic. The linear structures are constructed out of thin aluminum and steel materials that are molded to create 3D rectangular figures.

The pieces resemble free-form sketches that one would draw using ink. When creating her art works, sculptor Sara Barker aims to challenge gravity by building delicately layered compositions that appear to float freely. Sara pushes the boundaries of her chosen materials and transforms the frigidity and strength of metal into fragility.

The structural shells of her pieces are accented with subtly splattered watercolor applications that are pay tribute to the Victorian literature and art works of cultural greats Eva Hesse, Louise Bourgeois and Matisse.
