Kristin Baker, Encrypted Antithetic, acrylic on PVC, 2016
We think these pieces are quite exciting, especially Encrypted Antithetic, given the political atmosphere at the moment. Baker (American, b. 1975) is a New York-based painter whose work focuses on disrupting the limitations of her medium.
Kristin Baker, Diaphonous Leverage, acrylic on PVC, 2016
By emphasizing the materiality of paint through her built up layers of troweled acrylic, Baker's paintings approach other two-dimensional practices such as printmaking, photography, and paper assemblage.
Kristin Baker, Untitled, acrylic on PVC, 2016
Her compositions combine illusionistic and pictorial space as well as artificial forms and surfaces. Bakergraduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and received an MFA from Yale in 2002.

Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Pig,
black charcoal, oil-pastel, oil-paint, paint-stick, gouache on Lenox Paper, 2014
Using charcoal, oil-paint, paint-stick, gouache and oil pastel, Quinn's meticulously rendered compositions appear as if physically collaged from various sourced images.
Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Chainsaw Master, black charcoal, oil-pastel, oil-paint, paint-stick, gouache on Lenox Paper, 2014
Quinn's works are deeply informed by his personal history growing up in Chicago's South Side. His childhood experiences at the Robert Taylor Homes, a place of violence, abandonment and poverty, are embedded into his early narrative. Highlights feature portraits of individuals from the artist's past, who, through various means, were able to make it out of the notorious public housing project.

In his first New York solo show in six years, Alex Dodge features a new series of paintings made with an entirely unique process; imagery is generated in 3D-rendering programs and stenciled with thick oil paint onto canvas. Dodge's studio practice has consistently explored the promise of technology as it interacts with and shapes human experience. His newest works are deftly located between new media and traditional painting.
Alex Dodge, Monument, oil on canvas, 2016
Each painting features a patterned fabric optically drafted to imply volume, perspective and gravity. Some fabrics are draped over objects, while others seem to be filled with a gelatinous liquid that oozes out of openings in the cloth. Several of the paintings imply a narrative, with the fabrics forming a series of figures, some more familiar than others.
Alex Dodge The Flag Today, oil on canvas, 2016
The variety of fabrics - stripes, damasks, ginghams and polka-dots - imply cultural contexts that have been transcended through technology. The patterns function as platonic touchstones, transferred into binary code and rematerialized in paint, emphasizing the human and the technological as one.
Alex Dodge, No Rainbow Without Rain (Fukushima), oil on canvas, 2016
