Mark Barrow & Sarah Parke

Since they began to work together in 2008, Sarah Parke & Mark Barrow have shared a practice fusing textile production, computer coding and modernist design. For their intricate textile-painting hybrids combining geometric abstractions in pastel hues on woven fabric, Parke creates the base layer of woven pieces, on the top of which Barrow paints series of dots upon raised portions of the weave. In their practice taking inspiration from computer software, handicraft and painting are blended to create complex layered compositions underpinned by scientific theories and conceptual ideas.
