“Lynne Barwick’s text works incorporate literary techniques and genres, such as essays, criticism and concrete poetry, to examine the uses of language in visual arts. While exploring the documentation conventions of conceptual art, Barwick’s work also references defunct and discredited ideologies and beliefs ? such as those from religion, magic and psychology ? which continue to influence contemporary culture. The sequence of paintings, Nature: An Inquisition, presents a series of propositions and declarations that examine the narratives surrounding ideas of community and evolution” – Lynne Barwick
