Barbara M. Gilhooly

Barbara Gilhooly

Barbara Gilhooly has a multi-discipline approach to her art making, crossing several mediums rooted in line and drawing. Her recent focus has been on charcoal drawings that reflect the flora and fauna of Colorado, where she lives and works. Gilhooly's abstract work often features circular shapes, symbolizing the harmony between organic and geometric forms. She explores the contrasts and similarities between the industrial and natural worlds in her art.

In her painted pieces, Gilhooly builds up layers of color and pattern, incorporating ink drawings and various techniques like carving, sanding, and scrubbing to reveal textures underneath. The result is a surface that tells a rich and active history. With an MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Colorado State University and a BFA from the University of North Dakota, Gilhooly initially established her studio practice in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she gained recognition for her paintings, wire sculptures, and art objects. Since moving to Colorado in 2010, she has continued to exhibit her work actively.
