The two Barclay screenprints in the collection are part of a series begun in 2010 for which she began by cutting paper stencils of simple elemental forms and then printing from these in sequences of overlapping or inverted or repeated shapes. Through numerous experiments with the process she arrived at a selection for the final screenprints of those which she felt had a sense of ‘body’ – human or non-human.
