About Barbara Bartos

Barbara Bartos is a Romanian born multidisciplinary artist. She holds an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and a BFA from the University of Art and Design in Cluj, Romania. She has recently moved back to Europe and is now based in Rome, Italy after living in the US for the past 15 years. Her work explores the image in an experimental way, through a variety of media from site-specific sculptural interventions, to audio-visual objects, drawings, paintings and prints. Current investigations revolve around what is an ‘image’ and how different forms of perception can shape its meaning. Barbara’s work has been exhibited in international galleries and museums including The Engine Room, London, UK; Southern Exposure, San Francisco, US; Palazzo Correr, Venice, Italy; Caixa-Ourense, Spain; Modern Art Gallery, Miskolc, Hungary; National Art Museum, Cluj, Romania.
