M. Gert Barkovic has always enjoyed the simplicity of life and its often overlooked details. Materials give value to objectmaking for her—she finds the small revelations in touching surfaces and identifying new methods or techniques self-evolving. Objects can conflict in their texture, placement, and starkness, but this compels Barkovic as a fabricator—she sews steel, cement, or rubber together while trying to remain simple and honest. For Barkovic, heating, bending, or forming materials allows her to be a silent communicator. By involving other matter in her pieces, she experiences varied kinds of satisfaction from her forms. The overwhelming physical nature of these industrial materials creates a sense of solace and contemplation.
