Gallerie Citi celebrated the opening of the new exhibition "Awaken" last night. I am thrilled to have two works in the show -- and to have the show titled after my paintings. But the real thrill is to have my work shown alongside the Bay Area legends Joan Brown and Elmer Bischoff -- and with my friend Kim Froshin who continues in their expressive artistic footsteps. It's an honor to be there!
“One of my earliest memories of art is watching my father, Philip Barlow, at the end of a long day, sitting and pondering a new painting he brought home from his studio. Did it “say” what his mind’s eye wanted it to say?
I took some creative detours – acting and writing – before finding my voice as an artist. I studied with amazing teachers and mentors in San Francisco, at UC Berkeley and the Art Students League of New York, but I have been influenced most by the work, words, wisdom – and the powerful “mind’s eye” of my father.
