Nascar Art @ Deitch

Thursday I went to Deitch Gallery to see Kristin Baker's latest art installation. Inspired by Nascar, Baker creates huge multicolored pieces of work, without any trace of brush work. By using her palette knife her pieces almost resemble stain glass. Standing back from the canvases you see cohesive images, such as, a ship wreck, someone's bedroom, and an expanse landscape. The Guggenheim just snagged some of her work, check the show at Deitch and catch her gallery talk at the Guggenheim tomorrow.
