Working on varying scales and with diverse materials, Dorothy Barnes is inspired by the challenge of amplifying the beauty and richness of nature, often by using a combination of weaving techniques. She experiments with plants, wood, bark, stone, glass, and mica to reflect upon the process of creativity and its outcome.
