Fire Diary is an ongoing series of 100+ paintings that reflect and are inspired by various aspects of fire, including climate change, personal loss, anger, purification, and regeneration. They represent, in part, the reawakening and reconstruction of my identity in the wake of profound tragedy—the 2017 death of my husband in a bicycle accident. In these paintings, I seek to integrate the theme of habitat loss, which has long been at the center of my work, and my experience of personal loss. Sometimes chaotic in subject matter and but meditative in their execution and repetitive nature, they are finished works in their own right, as well as notes for larger paintings.

Barbara Schreiber makes pretty paintings that examine large issues through a small, domestic lens.
Her exhibitions include the High Museum of Art, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, SPACE Pittsburgh, the Weatherspoon Museum of Art, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Telfair Museum of Art, Mint Museum of Art, American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, Amerika Hauses throughout Germany, the Sorbonne and numerous other spaces.

In addition to her work as an artist, Schreiber can sometimes be pestered into writing about visual art. Her articles, essays, reviews and navel staring have appeared in Art Papers, Sculpture, Metalsmith, Creative Loafing Charlotte, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Charlotte Observer and other publications.

Born in Baltimore MD, Schreiber attended Atlanta College of Art and received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art.
