The title Comfort alludes to both artists’ investigations into ideas of removal from a normative state of being. Walsh and Barker have distinct practices yet it is in these considerations where their work finds common ground. While Walsh’s process directly deals with the idea of making as an inherently cathartic action, Barker’s work arises from a tension between an apprehension and fascination for that which lies beyond our comfortable state.
