Overview

Amanda Baldwin was born in Seattle, WA in 1984 and currently lives and works in Queens, NY.  She received her BFA from University of Washington and MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. 

 

Working with traditional modes of depiction, such as landscape painting and still life, Amanda Baldwin starts by separating and considering each individual element within a composition.  She approaches these objects, from vases to mountains to melons and their shifted palettes with the intent to morph them into some kind of abstracted facsimile of themselves.  By straddling representation and abstraction within each piece she breaks down the familiar and presents playful worlds where uncertainty works itself into concrete forms.  Rock, plant; the organic and inorganic, can all produce eerily similar rhythms and patterns within her work.  By striking a balance between disintegration and recognition Baldwin imbues new identities to the familiar. 

 

Her recent solo shows include Hesse Flatow (New York, 2020), Thierry Goldberg Gallery (New York, 2019), and 106 Green (New York, 2017).  Selected group exhibitions include Y2K Group (New York, 2019), Underdonk Gallery (New York, 2018), Essex Flowers (New York, 2018) and Brennan & Griffin (New York, 2016).
