Laura Onions – Interior of an Inn

Barber Home – artist response

Artist Laura Onions shares a series of drawings, produced in lockdown, responding to Charles-François Daubigny’s 1861 etching, Interior of an Inn.

Particularly taken with Daubigny’s play with light and shadow, Laura has used pared down materials to explore the domestic landscape of her own home.

The drawings make visible moments of familiarity and comfort, but also show the strangeness and insecurity we may currently find from these spaces.
