About

The quiet stillness of Barbara Kolo’s minimalist artworks evokes a time of reflection. Inspired by natural forms and influenced by Impressionist, Aboriginal, and Asian art, she has developed a meditative visual language using the simplicity of dots, lines, and circles. Her paintings grow organically, with any resulting symmetry and order happening in the moment.

Kolo created this 34 inch high by 26 inch wide monochrome painting on archival paper to capture a unique shape with balanced subtlety. In her “Obsession Series,” she repeatedly hand-stamps ink or acrylic paint circles with different degrees of pressure, creating imperfections and variations that expose the artist’s hand. Each dot or circle is then counted with tally marks that become an integral part of the image. It is signed and dated by the artist on the front, lower right corner. It is framed in a black wood frame. Size and price include the frame. It is wired and ready to hang. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Barbara Kolo was born and educated in New York. Having developed an appreciation for art from an early age, her interest in drawing and painting lead her to attend the High School of Art and Design, followed by the School of Visual Arts.

During the 1980’s Barbara built a career as an award-winning art director in creative advertising for film and television. Her career brought her to Los Angeles in 1989. As an independent freelance art director, she worked directly with major film studios and design studios specializing in film advertising. In 1991, she became the Director of Print Advertising at Universal Studios.

Kolo moved to Paris with her husband in 2000. She rented an art studio by La Bastille and participated in “Genie de la Bastille” an event similar to the Venice Art Walk in California. In 2003, the couple returned to Santa Monica. Since then, Barbara has re-established herself in the local art community by participating in various solo and group exhibitions. Kolo’s work is held in public and private collections in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Taiwan, Australia, and the U.A.E.

Barbara Kolo

Barbara Kolo was born and educated in New York. Having developed an appreciation for art from an early age, her interest in drawing and painting lead her to attend the High School of Art and Design, followed by the School of Visual Arts.

During the 1980’s, Kolo built a career as an award-winning art director in creative advertising for film and television. Her job brought her to Los Angeles in 1989. As an independent freelance art director, she worked directly with major film studios and design studios and became the Director of Print Advertising at Universal Studios.

Barbara Kolo’s early interest in drawing and painting has never diminished. During the early 90’s, she followed the urge to develop her own personal artistic voice and began creating her own works. Her drawings were soon being included in local and national group shows. Her focus slowly changed from commercial to fine art.

Inspired by natural forms and influenced by Impressionist, Aboriginal, and Asian art, she has developed a meditative visual language using the simplicity of dots, lines, and circles. She repeatedly hand-stamps ink or acrylic circles with different degrees of pressure, creating imperfections and variations that expose the artist’s hand. Each dot or circle is then counted with tally marks that become an integral part of the image. The total tally is the title of the work.

Kolo moved with her husband to Paris in 2000. She rented an art studio by La Bastille and participated local art exhibitions. In 2003, the couple returned to Santa Monica. Since then, Kolo’s artworks have continuously been exhibited in various solo and group exhibitions. Barbara Kolo’s work is held in public and private collections in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Taiwan, Australia, and the U.A.E.
