Opening Public House of Art ‘The devil inside me’
With artworks of the series ‘Cry if you want t0’

Here Barbara has taken a walk on the dark side as she composites multiple photographs into one to create childlike images of some of history’s darkest dictators, as well as sitting US President Donald J. Trump. It bears the question we’ve all considered at one point, what were these powerful and destructive men like as children? What was the occurrence that ripped away their fragile innocence we are all born with? True to herself, Barbara’s message in these works is not dark, but a gentle reminder that we all start off with the purest of naivety about the world, and as adults we must strive to keep this strength within us. Even these seemingly heartless men experience beauty, sadness, and fragility, and only through an open and slightly naive heart can we make our way out of these dark times stronger than we came in.
