About the Work
Hayley Barker's main subject is the natural world, which she renders expressively in oil on linen. The intuitive undercurrent in her approach enlivens the real and imagined scenes she paints, allowing viewers to pierce directly through to the space between things. The image featured in Barker's hand-embellished series My Riverwood, based on her painting of the same name, was inspired by a swimming hole in Mehama, Oregon, which holds long standing personal significance for the artist, exacerbated by Pacific Northwest forest fires that ran rampant during summer 2020. In My Riverwood, is the world flipped upside down or is it reflecting itself? Barker's style collapses boundaries, illustrating how the ineffable hides its responses in the transition moments between the moon and the mountains, the rivers and the trees.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
