Barclay is best known for sculptural works that combine a range of processes, materials and surfaces, as well as an ongoing series of drawings and prints. ‘Overlap’ examines the relationship between Barclay’s two and three-dimensional work and the role of different techniques and media within her practise. For this exhibition, in Glasgow Print Studio's exhibition space, Barclay presents a combination of new and existing work, including a series of prints, a sculptural work incorporating a tapestry made in collaboration with Dovecot Studios, and print-based works produced and developed in the Glasgow Print Studio workshop, all of which form part of a larger sculptural installation. In the development of the exhibition a group of artists, curators and writers met with Barclay to discuss printmaking and sculpture, and how these function in her practice. A new text based on a conversation amongst Barclay, Ruth Barker and Dominic Paterson (two of the group’s participants) was commissioned to document this process and accompany the exhibition. The resulting text takes the form of a poster designed by Graphical House, and includes specially conceived artwork by Barclay.
