Join us Thursday, January 28, 2021 for the opening reception of Gather at the River, a solo exhibition featuring Case Baumgarten. Baumgarten’s body of work presents the incessant search for lost loved ones. Through abstraction and realism, his paintings push the viewer to address all images of faith.
Artist Statement: Even in moments of familiarity and what is recognized, lay emotions of helplessness and sorrow with these figures. The experience of color and the absence of color serve as vessels for the figure through spiritual territories. As I developed my art after the passing of my beloved father, I returned to this series, only to realize I had been creating self portraits. That these figures were a representation of my own search for a lost loved one.
