Beverly Baker — Palimpseste
Past: February 3 → 28, 2015
Beverly Baker’s drawings are created through the obsessive layering of text found in a small selection of books and magazines that she uses as reference material. The final abstract compositions generally contain only trace hints (indices indications) of their genesis in language as Baker draws continuously on the same sheet, obliterating her original words or letters with additional words, lines and color. Most of her drawings are created with ballpoint pens, colored pencils and permanent marker.
Baker, who has Down Syndrome, is a member of the Latitude Artist Community in Lexington, Kentucky, a program with the stated mission of serving all people, with an emphasis on those thought by some to have a disability. Unlike most “studio programs” for artists with disabilities, Latitude creates meaningful, inclusive community interactions and allows participating artists to contribute culturally and politically to the life of their community. Baker has been an integral member of Latitude since its founding in 2001.
