That’s right, all! Kicking off the new year, Elly Baldwin will host RED ROVER’s first installation of 2012 with her series Self Portraits, No. 1 – 105.
Eleanor Baldwin received her B.A. from Lewis & Clark College, where she was awarded the Barbara Bartholomew Scholarship at the recommendation of her department. Elly will be presenting a collection of self-portraits painted consecutively over a period of 125 days. By utilizing the mirror as a space for self-reflection, she used her works to meditate on the ever-shifting nature of identity and the ways in which we choose the aspects of ourselves to be seen by the world. In addition to revealing Elly’s daily self-interpretation, this series also explores the medium of painting itself by experimenting with the application of material, from acrylic and oil paint to coffee grounds and plastic bubble wrap.
The RED ROVER gallery may be seen on Thursday, December 29th, 2011 through January 19th, 2012 on Northeast 21st Avenue between Sumner and Emerson Streets.
