Into the Mirror: Carrie Ann Baade

March 11 -

May 29, 2022

Exhibition overview

2021 Members Show winner Carrie Ann Baade describes herself as steward and axman, returning to the haunting moments in art history in order to reclaim them. By using the “bone yard” of Western painting with reverence, she cuts them up into fragments resulting in collage. In their repainting, these are fierce feminist parables.  Paintings made of paintings, the old masterworks are infused with the artist’s own experience. 

Carrie Ann Baade (born 1974 in Louisiana) is a contemporary painter whose work quotes from, interacts with, and deeply relates to art history. She paints in dialogue with relevant masterpieces from Modern period to antiquity, in order to reclaim them in a surreal narrative that is simultaneously biographical.

Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at: the Delaware Contemporary, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles, the Ningbo Art Museum in China, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida.
Carrie Ann Baade received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, and earned her MFA in Painting from the University of Delaware. Raised on the front range in Colorado, she now lives and works in Tallahassee, where she is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Florida State University.
