UK-based artist Sukhi Barber is the creator behind these slivered bronze cast sculptures. Barber spend twelve years in Nepal closely studying Buddhist philosophy while developing her artistic skills in bronze casting. She eventually returned back to the UK to put her newly found artistic skills to use on these sculptures.

Sukhi Barber uses her artwork as a bridge between Western and Eastern culture. The Buddhist practice employs the use of peace and Barber uses this to create a compositional balance to make devotional art that represents both complex philosophical ideas. Barber’s work explores the use of negative space and her slivered sculptures stress the importance of negative space almost as if the space itself is material. The sculptures by Sukhi Barber would also make an excellent zen-like room decoration.
