An exhibition of drawings by Michael B. Baum
On view September 28 – October 28, 2016
Reception Friday, September 30, 5 – 7
Artist’s talk, at 6
Michael Baum left the plains of the Dakotas in his early twenties for the mountain ranges of California, Wyoming, Montana, Washington and Alaska. His interactions with nature and the wilderness became the impetus for his graduate studies in fine art, which he completed at Washington State University with an emphasis in drawing and printmaking. Michael is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Black Hills State University in South Dakota, as well as curator for the Ruddell Gallery.
Through rigorous physical practice he explores the intersection of kinesiology, drawing, and technology. He has an extensive list of exhibitions and was awarded a career development grant through the South Dakota Arts Council for a series of drawings entitled Heart to Heart.
” My work employs both drawing and kinesiology to examine the convergence of sport and art. I make work with the aid of drawing devices that have been designed to record various outdoor pursuits, ranging from long distance cycling trips, to backcountry ski tours. The resulting work exists as a series of drawings, an indexical record of my travels. The images stand as a document providing the means of engaging and communicating with both nature and the self through performance. “
Site:Brooklyn is proud to present its newest show, Drawing Lines Across Mediums, an exhibition of new drawing. Drawing Lines Across Mediums seeks to show the art form at its most dynamic and diverse. These pieces range from those which investigate the potential multi-dimensionality of drawing to conceptual geometric works to monochromatic figurative studies. Olga Valle Tetkowski, our guest curator, is responsible for the selection of the work. She has worked for many years at The Drawing Center, one of the premiere non-for-profit institutions in the world dedicated to the art of drawing. Her work there makes her especially well situated to understand both the classical place of drawing and its most exciting and important developments. We hope that this show gives the viewer the opportunity to encounter drawing in unexpected and challenging ways.
