Amanda Baldwin

Amanda Baldwin was born in Seattle, WA, and currently lives and works in Queens, NY. She received her BFA from the University of Washington and MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Solo shows include 106 Green (New York), Thierry Goldberg Gallery (New York), and upcoming solo in Septemberat HESSE FLATOW (New York). Selected group exhibitions include Underdonk Gallery (New York), Y2K Group (New York), Brennan & Griffin (New York), and Shin Gallery (New York). During the creation of the composition, I’m thinking about riding the line between order and discombobulation. That can manifest itself in certain aspects like enhanced color, arrangement, scale, transparency, pattern, perspective, flatness, and depth. At first glance, the paintings may seem straightforward and literal but examining them closer will show signs of subtle disintegration of those assumed realities. Varied degrees of representation and rendering allow me to focus on specific ideas projected onto everyday objects and vessels. Mundane and inanimate items like fruit can take on anthropomorphic qualities by zooming in and blowing up certain attributes. Overall the paintings can be both familiar and uncanny, a sort of déjà vu.
