Text; NY Artsmagazine International 2000 by Dr. phil. Astrid Brunner)

1999 was the beginning of the project motions paintings and portraits in the station of Glarus CH, where the artist Barbara Streiff lives and works. Scetches from the people, they was waiting and moving on place. This art is nt freshened, emotions and movement are allowed, and every body is welcome to be a part of this action. In the dark and quiet waiting room, where before was only the clock " tick-tac", comes live in.

2000/01 Perfromance NYC. She sits at the Grand Station, at Broadway, China-Down, Central Park, at Place Pigalle, a current newspaper on her knees. The daily rags around the world are her canvas. The intent of these action " Comics" is expressionistic "free flow of everyday life." They speak of pasion, pathos, and skill. This "boulevard performance" mirrow from the inside of what passes outside. The process of tis action " Comics" is intuitive.
