About

A Love for Animals and Nature

Barbara Rush is a very colorful and structured acrylic artist. Her work has been
infl uenced by cubists artists such as Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, and Jean Metzinger,
but her style is uniquely her own. She creates elegant outlines of horses, fl orals,
and trees, then fi lls them with heavily gridded shapes, or curves, that in the same
moment break apart and hold the subject matter together. Life is molded from lines,
capturing the essence of its energy on the canvas.

Ms. Rush currently resides in Roswell, GA. She is originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia
and was educated in fi ne art and graphic design. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from
Old Dominion University (VA) and a Master’s in Advertising (Design) from Syracuse
University (NY). As a practicing graphic designer, her art is heavily infl uenced by
lines, grids, and shapes. Her love of fi nding shapes and forms within her subject
matter is easily discernible within every painting she creates.
All in all, Ms. Rush’s unique way of connecting with her subject matter, combined with
her unique style and analytical analysis of interlocking shapes, makes her paintings
resonate with vitality and significance in the art world.

“The Tao of Equus Series was inspired by my love of
horses and several cubist paintings on display in the
High Museum of Art (Atlanta, GA) in 2006. Struck
by the essence of the cubists’ accomplishment of
capturing movement on paper, I was compelled to see
what the structure of the horse would look like as it
shifted with each position of its body. I immediately
began drawing restructured horses and playing with
complementary curves and angles within the form of
the horse. The result is what I call Geocubism and it
is the way I have been painting since 2007.”
