Kick back and take in Kristin Baker’s “Splitting Twilight” at Deitch

kristinbaker_splittingtwilight_01

The Kristin Baker show “Splitting Twilight” is coming to an end December 19th. Check out her paintings at Deitch Projects at their 18 Wooster Street location in NYC. There are some smaller pieces in the front of the gallery, but the giant ones are in the upper back section. Think raw, layered, accidental, landscapelike pieces that are quite large but avoid feeling heavy.

I took a lunchtime stroll down there – A nice brain cure after a failed attempt at curing some super late night insomnia (“Apocalypse Now”… this will put me to sleep… not) – just kicked back and took these in.

More photos after the jump.

The beautiful world of Ian Francis
