Sophie Barbasch’s The Source of Heat triggers an intense gravitational energy that emanates from a particular manipulation of light and color. Images point to atmospheric landscapes, amorphous objects, and emotive figures that mediate an ambiguous spectrum of lightness and darkness.

Defined as a noun, the word heat describes the sensation, perception, and quality of being hot- often regarded as a sensation relating to the body. As a verb, heat can be understood as an arousal of intense emotion – energy that excites the mind with rage or passion. The Source of Heat repeatedly places the viewer in a position to evaluate an emotional temperature as both action and entity, showing the source of emotion as a moving target.
