Born in 1970, Agnes Barley trained at Parsons in NYC and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Austria. It is hard to know much more about her, though her reputation as Arthur Miller’s last wife, from 2002 until he died in 2005, looms large in any conversation you have.

We find Barley’s shapes mesmerizing. We first saw them at the Troy showroom, when it was on Mercer street, and then more recently in Kate and Andy Spade’s personal collection, hung on the wall of their Broome Street store.

An abstract painter, these drawings on paper were first exhibited in 2004 at Jen Bekman in NYC, where you can still find them.

Perhaps the last words are best had by Arthur Miller himself: “these works are not ‘pictures’ but rather imagined captures of space in which structures under tension interact. The intention is to approach fundamental relationships in reality.”


Best,
