Slater Barron


SLATER BARRON is a prolific artist who works from a conceptual foundation, trying to use the media that best fits the idea. Recycled materials are often her media of choice. She likes to make objects, usually trying to do things she may not be able to pull off. The process of problem solving becomes obsessive and joyful. While attaining her M.F.A. at California State University, Long Beach, and Bachelor’s degree at the University of California, Irvine, she had the privilege of studying with art notables John Paul Jones and William Wegman. Now Slater is internationally known for making art using dryer lint as her medium. She is inspired by her surroundings and those she holds dear, as well as many social causes she feels strongly about. Visit her website.
