Carrie Ann Baade: Mimesis - Gadsden Arts Center

September 28 - December 15, 2018

Carrie Ann Baade's exhibition Mimesis relies on the artist's ability to realistically describe the world, imitate it, and then subvert and distort it to show the viewer her vision. Baade's collection of paintings is executed using old master techniques as a way to make the viewer feel comfortable, at home with the traditional oil paintings known in museums and books. However, the artist's subject matter is a surrealistic cacophony of images, pulled from Baade's archive of images gathered for the past decade of people, angels, fire, and animals configured to comment on current social, political or economic issues.
