2019 Hohenberg Award Winner Charity Baker

 
2019 Hohenberg Award Winner Charity Baker presents
“The Red Passion Suite” in the New York Studio School Lobby.

Reception: Wednesday, January 22nd, 6 – 8 PM, 2020

The Red Passion Suite
 
The Red Passion Suite is a series of paintings, describing a relationship between two people who got back together– for a second chance.  This work is inspired by my trip to Europe under the Hohenberg grant to study art and create a body of work.
 
In Venice I saw “The Legend of Saint Ursula” by Vittore Carpaccio, at the Gallerie dell’Accademia.  Quite amazed by the entirety of his vision, it was here that I decided to attempt my own modest series.   I have used the landscapes from Northern Spain as a backdrop, combined with select Etruscan figurative sculptures as muses.
 
For this grant I decided to immerse myself in a study of art which stretched further back in history.  Most of what I saw was site specific, beginning with Paleolithic cave art in Northern Spain up and through the late Renaissance paintings of Italy.
