BIOGRAPHY

J. F. Baldwin

Born 1979

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“The paintings in this body of work are an external reflection on the human condition. They represent a culmination of thought, tradition, and process. I perceive them as points of rest for both the participants and the observers; giving the viewer’s anecdotes of the greater narrative. The paintings themselves live and breathe these events through a constant state of interrupted development.”

 

BIOGRAPHY

J.F. Baldwin wrestles the fine line between classical painting and assemblage. His works deal both with the metaphysical and the real as a way to transcend material and paint into complex a narrative.
