Meegan BarnesSculptures and Paintings - December 2020
Based in Los Angeles, California.
Sculptures and Paintings
Barnes’ long creative career in fashion in NYC combined with a very influential 4 months in Brazil have all led to her current body of work. She celebrates the female figure and society’s ongoing obsession with butts, immersing herself fully into creating dynamic works that encapsulated her interests in art, design and feminism.
The sculptures straddle the line between art and craft by re-imagining iconic ancient artifacts through a lens heavily influenced by modern day pop culture. Her paintings both poke fun at, as well as muse on self enhancement and exhibitionism as forms of feminine liberation.
Her work has been featured in numerous group shows at galleries including New Image Art, The New Museum, FIFTY24SF, The Lodge LA, MAMA Gallery & Stephanie Chefas Projects. She had a solo show, Booteus Maximus at New Image Art in 2018 and has been featured in publications including Vice, Paper, Juxtapose and Playboy and on TV shows including CLAWS and The L Word. Collaborations include Opening Ceremony, Axel Arigato and HUF Worldwide.
