Carrie Ann Baade uses art historical references as an anchor for her intricately layered, exquisitely painted, bold compositions. She draws us in through the comfort of these vaguely familiar visual associations, and then confronts us with contemporary issues such as gender equality, sexuality and the struggle to define oneself. Her complex, luscious works are at once reverent, soulful, unsettling and sincere.
