Ever Baldwin: Down the Line

Ever Baldwin’s (b. 1978) paintings probe the porous barriers that separate and frame experience. Working intuitively and with a material immediacy, he sets his thick, matte abstract paintings—made by mixing marble dust and pigment with wax—within burned and blackened hand-carved wooden frames. Baldwin uses the slippages of abstraction to resist legibility and set into motion a constellation of relational meanings: the body becomes landscape as breasts and chest hair slide into roadways and tunnels; the materiality of surfaces mix with mystical and unconscious thoughts; and drag iconography melds with modernist icons. This exhibition—Baldwin’s first solo museum show—charts for visitors these constellations within his works.
