Of German Jamaican Parentage brought up in England, China and Cyprus Sonia Elizabeth Barrett has an international range of cultural influences. A graduate of St Andrews University where she studied Philosophy, Literature and International Relations and the Transart Institute (MFA) she has an unusual grounding in the concepts to which she offers her unique visual response. “I preform furniture. I translate antique 18th /19th century European furnishings typified by the inclusion of lion’s feet. Primarily sculptural, installation and video works ensue. The works meditate upon the division between the animal, the person and the object. The relationship between the laboring table or chair and the seated user is considered. My practice has broadened to include a wide range of  seats and interior objects but is consistent is exploring, blurring, re positioning and questioning the the relationship between the user and the used.”
