Barbara Sullivan’s shaped frescoes celebrate ordinary household objects and tools. Chairs, frying pans, cans of soap powder acquire character, shaped not only with plaster, but also with affectionate irony. In 2007 Sullivan received a Pollock/Krasner Grant; she had received two Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Support Grants. She has been included in the Portland Biennial, and she has shown at CMCA, at Caldbeck Gallery, and the Morgan Rank Gallery, East Hampton, New York. She is committed, Sullivan says, to keeping “fresco alive as a medium in contemporary art practice by teaching workshops.
