FEBRUARY 2017

* Thanks to Women In Photography for featuring my image, Rings of Saturn, 2013 from Neither For Me Honey Nor the Honey Bee. Four years later and I am still deeply immersed in Sebald's work, which has coincidentally intertwined into my own work and has led me to meet many wonderful people along the way. Thank you, Sebald.


* Great Northern Labs has been hard at work on their latest project, which we have been keeping a pretty low profile on. This is mainly due to a large amount of research which has led me down a serendipitous path, one that has kept me quietly and thoroughly focused for two years now. But work does not stop even if the GNL team is on vacation in the Florida Keys. So we'll be enjoying some Sebald in paradise with a side of mojitos for the next week.


JANUARY 2017

* HAPPY NEW YEAR!! What does Great Northern Labs have in store for the year of the Rooster? We're not quite ready to reveal whats behind the curtain, but maybe Laura Palmer knows. Feel free to drop into the Lab this winter while we toil away at our research. For all you star gazers, the Rooster is the sign of dawn and awakening. According to the wise ones, success can only be achieved at the price of hard work and patience. GNL sends out much love to all of our friends and family - may you all achieve something wonderful and beautiful this year.


DECEMBER 2016

* Returning home is sometimes the best inspiration, especially when the Milky Way is so clear above these icy farms. Happy holidays from us at Great Northern Labs!.

* The stars continue to align for me, this time at Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago. Many thanks to the photo gods and Czech angels who are guiding me.


OCTOBER 2016

* I encourage all students and listeners when I lecture that disciplinary allies are a wonderful thing to have within an art practice. This also may include side jobs or the main job that you have which financially supports your art. 6-8 months out of the year I work as a horticulturalist maintaining native flowering perennial plants in Illinois. This setting gives me the time and space away from my work to reflect on the state of things in my studio. Weeding leads to great ideas.

* It has been four years since The Dailys began in July 2012. Here, an image titled, August 26, 2012; Eryngium maritimum. This image is particularly interesting to me now since I work as a horticulturalist in Chicago growing and maintaining native perennial species not unlike the thistle pictured here - a drawing on a postcard that I bought from a conservatory in Amsterdam:

* Selections from Autobiogeography, Neither For Me Honey Nor the Honey Bee, and The Dailys are up on Ballad of Magazine, with additional words by Tessa Bolsover.

"Barnes refers to her work as a collection of "souvenirs of a life lived". The contact prints are decidedly both images and artifacts, drawing attention to the physical limitations of photography as well as the slow, meticulous process, which in turn becomes a form of meditation and even self-discovery."


MAY 2016

* This month I had the leisure to exhibit alongside fellow Chicago-based artist, Autumn Elizabeth Clark, in the series Axis & Allies. This was a great opportunity for me to experiment with a new installation, where I displayed an arrangement of various works in different mediums.

Co-Founders Sara Rouse and Alex Calhoun say:
"Axis and Allies is an exhibition and conversation series seeking to pair MFA-holding or seeking artists from different institutions in an effort to expand contextual circles and encourage critical discourse between geographically and/or educationally disparate practices through conversation and exhibition. Such an exhibition series allows for the creation of productive relationships through both harmonious and incongruent associations."

* Fellow photographer / sculptor / installation / conceptual artist, Richard Williamson, teamed up with me to participate in The Swap - two photographers each take a portrait of the other. We are so thrilled to be a part of this on-going project and archive.

* Friends, what can I say, except that the ladies over at A Women's Thing are some the most generous and inspiring people in publishing. They were so kind and supportive to ask me to contribute images for their first issue, but wait, it did not stop there, for I just received this package which included among copies of the issue, a bouquet of the sweetest smelling lavender there ever was. Three cheers for Women, Love, and Friendship. (pictured: "Apples and Glass," 2013, from Neither For Me Honey Nor the Honey Bee

* I have been busy this fall shipping prints out to organizations and projects that I want to support and see flourish. In September I donated a set of prints to A Women's Thing in NYC, and this month I am thrilled to donate work, for the third year in a row, to The Ossabaw Foundation.

As one of the Golden Isles off the coast of Georgia (USA), Ossabaw Island is only to be used for natural, scientific and cultural study, research and education, and environmentally sound preservation, conservation and management of the Island’s ecosystem. I first visited the island in 2012 when I donated a piece to be auctioned off. The main house is only open to the public one day out of the year during the annual Pig Roast.

This year I donated "Audubon Mantle" from Neither For Me Honey Nor the Honey Bee, which was taken inside the main house on my first visit in 2012. The image, "Wash Basin", of the same series, was also taken on that day.
