The Hepworth Wakefield has released this new print for sale for the 2023 iteration of School Prints. Each artist was carefully selected and commissioned by The Hepworth Wakefield to create new work for the culmination of the project due to their remarkable contributions to the gallery. The sale of the edition will fund an arts engagement programme with local schools.

As an artist educator herself for four decades, Barlow was delighted when approached to contribute to the school prints project. Barlow’s lithograph, untitled: boulders; 2022, is among the last works the artist made before she died in March 2023. Barlow was nominated for the inaugural Hepworth Prize for Sculpture in 2016. For the Prize exhibition, Barlow made new work and adapted existing sculptures constructed from simple everyday materials, with which her work has become synonymous. In 2021, The Hepworth Wakefield and Leeds Art Gallery were jointly allocated a large-scale sculpture by Phyllida Barlow, gifted to the nation through the Cultural Gifts Scheme, administered by the Arts Council.

Phyllida Barlow (b. 1944, Newcastle, UK; d. 2023, London, UK) trained at Chelsea College of Art  and Slade School of Fine Art. She began teaching at the Slade School of Fine Art in the 1960s. She stayed there for almost half a century, teaching the likes of Turner Prize winners Rachel Whiteread and Martin Creed, but in 2009 she retired from teaching in order to focus on her own work.

Barlow created large-scale works that were often made from inexpensive material, like cardboard, plywood and polystyrene, crudely painted in industrial or synthetic colours.

Barlow cited among her important influences artists such as Germaine Richier and Barbara Hepworth. However, her sculptures replace their solid volumes and carving with ragged, raw materials to create large-scale structures that often encroach upon the viewer’s space.
