The Fall art season in NYC has been particularly good this year, and it seems to just keep getting better. We finally made it over to see the new Kristin Baker show entitled “Splitting Twilight” at SOHO’s Deitch Projects, and not ever having seen her work in person before, we were blown away. Baker uses tape to define forms, which she fills with acrylic paint and layers to create abstract landscapes and environments that explode with light and color. In addition, her technique of building up and stripping down these forms on top of PVC and aluminum gives the works amazing depth. Seeing this show, there’s no doubt that this young artist is deserving of all her fame and accolades. “Splitting Twilight” is on view until December 19, and if you are in the city, we highly recommend you see it.
