Biography

Carrie Ann Baade Painter

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 the 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 the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and 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.
