VCS alumnus Taylor Baker in Disintegration, a solo exhibition of new work opening this Thursday, January 18th at SOMMWHERE Gallery
Disintegration comes as Taylor Baker’s second solo exhibition in New York, presenting a brand new body of work. previously, the artist worked primarily in forms of sculpture & installation. now, Baker has turned toward an interpretation of painting somewhat reminiscent of his sculptural practice. his stylized paintings test the limitations of the medium; seemingly questioning its status & aura. the breaking down or ‘disintegration’ of common elements of painting provides a tactile understanding of material, as well as aids an informal approach to certain ideologies tied to the medium.
