Presenter Bio

Barbara Licha
Born in Poland, where she commenced her studies of Painting, Graphics and Sculpture. Later moving and studying in Italy before coming to Australia and furthering her studies at the City Art institute Sydney.

The Polish-Australian artist says her past works involved painting and graphic approaches to drawing that involved pen and ink. Inspired by her drawings Licha began to experiment in the studio with sculpture, initiating the process of creating figures with chicken wire.

A few words from Barbara Licha: Everything about people interests me. The complexity of people’s behaviour has always intrigued me and inspired me to visually express the range of emotion we see in the human condition. I explore the parallels between ordinary people that I come across in real life and the people that reside in my imagination, my own representations of emotion.

Barbara’s inspiration: “My idea is to discover connections between spaces as well as between people in spaces”
Social distancing in 2020 aimed to respond to the conditions of a contemporary person surrounded by emotions, apathy and trouble during the difficult moments of isolation felt worldwide.
Ideas grow when sitting, thinking and working in a studio. She often works with several ideas at a time using mixed media, painting and small three-dimensional forms believing they are connected. Barbara says everyday observation always reveals something new to think about. Paired with her experiences travelling and contact with other cultures has been inspirational, as with movies, television, music, radio, books and general past and present knowledge can stimulate creativeness. Barbara enjoys contemporary dance and the theatre, where the human body is working to an extreme to express emotions and possibilities. Her favourite modern dance theatre is Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater, this form of art has inspired her a lot.
