Barbara Mink

Barbara Mink is an American painter based in Ithaca, New York. Her work has been described as "rich, sometimes quirky abstractions combine pouring and dripping in the tradition of Jackson Pollock with brushy atmospherics that owe something to Romantic landscape painting" (Arthur Whitman, The Thinking Eye). Her paintings integrate geometric shape with explorations of the processes that occur when acrylic paint is subjected to a range of physical treatments. Juxtaposing the large with the small, line with color, square with circle, intuitive with cerebral, she strives to construct a new world of inventive and playful, but always purposeful, content.

Barbara started painting in 1998, her work can be found in collections in Ithaca, New York City, Buffalo, Virginia, North Carolina, California, Alaska, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Washington, and Florida.
