Barbra has been quite controversial as her work and subject matter touches the more sensitive note within the viewer. That however does not mean that her work is "rubbish" it actually enhances the experience and takes the viewer on a roller-coaster ride as there is a deeper more real issues she tackles within them. Influences of a certain theorist Roland Barthes are quite evident in her work as the images and the structure of her work is cleverly used and well thought through. She uses semiotics to engage the viewer in to her work. This means she does not need to portray the full situation but she uses the right signs and signifier to illustrate her point. She leaves most of it to the observer's imagination therefore the effect of it is more powerful than ever. Ill be looking at her for my dissertation and also for the visual guidance.
