Learning to fly was the catalyst for Barbara Page’s career as an artist. After earning her pilot’s license, she took up painting and received her MFA from Cornell University in 1975. Her artworks, many from an aerial perspective, have been exhibited widely and are included in museum and corporate collections.
Page has a strong interest in exploring different disciplines and recasting them in time-based visual sequences. The Museum of the Earth, in Ithaca, NY was designed around her series of 544 bas-relief paintings depicting the history of life. Rock of Ages, Sands of Time, published by The University of Chicago Press (2001), contains color plates of the entire project.
Page is a world traveler, triathlete, and avid reader. Her love affair with printed matter led to the Book Marks project, an ongoing pictorial survey of her reading history, which has been exhibited at The Center for Book Arts in New York City and at public libraries. Book Marks: An Artist’s Card Catalog, both an art book and memoir, has just been published.
Rock of Ages, Sands of Time can be found in the Finger Lakes Library System here: https://catalog.flls.org/polaris/search/title.aspx?ctx=1.1033.0.0.3&pos=2&cn=137704
