OVER AND OVER AGAIN
Sienna Barton is a Naarm-based painter and textile artist. Her artistic practice is obsessive and time-consuming. Often serving as a means of soothing fidgety fingers, her work seeks to transform anxious energy into tangible works of art. She’s currently focusing on understanding her relationship to colour—why pink features so prolifically and why red makes her cringe. Her textile works utilise discarded materials from local clothing labels and her own wardrobe, while others are collected by her grandparents during their weekly trips to the op shop. Every work, from her paintings to her textile works, is obsessed over for tens of hours before finally reaching some kind of resolution.
