Read more about Glenn Barkley’s transition from curator to artist in an interview with Sharne Wolff, Six and a half Questions: Glenn Barkley, on The Art Life blog.
Q. Although you’ve been a curator and writer for many years, you’ve burst onto the scene as an artist in the last couple of years. Has it been a fun ride?
Glenn Barkley: Fun but busy.
I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the response to my work – I’m glad I started making again! I studied to be a painter so always felt a bit fraudulent being a curator without an art history or arts administration degree or some such.
I think being an exhibiting artist is making me a better curator.
Please join Edwina Corlette Gallery for the ‘Return to Beauty’ Opening on Thursday, 7 April 6 – 8pm. All welcome.
