Press release

Baldwin Gallery is pleased to announce our fourth show with painter Will Cotton. Cotton’s portraits and landscapes depict a world of exquisite fantasy: an augmented reality that challenges the viewer’s relationships with beauty, perfection, and desire. In the current body of work, Cotton centers the precarious performance of patriarchy. Metonymies of manhood, the cowboys are archetypes strong and silent: suddenly undone by Cotton’s habitue context of sweetness and velvety succulence.

Will Cotton was born in Melrose, MA. His paintings have been included in numerous group shows throughout the United States and Europe, and have been the subject of recent solo shows in New York City, Paris and Berlin.

Baldwin Gallery also presents our fourth show with Los Angeles artist Mark Licari. Licari’s lightly joyous view, and the futurist freneticism of his mark-making, bring delight to his deeper questions of isolation, ecological impact, anxiety, and self-discovery. The current show references the familiar events of the recent past: influencer fueled escape fantasies, a manifestation of distance, confinement, and narratives of discovery.

Mark Licari was born in Atlanta, GA. He received his MFA from USC, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Public collections include Gemeente Museum: The Hague, Netherlands, Metropolitan Museum of Art: New York, NY, Monterey Museum of Art: Monterey, CA, LA County Museum of Art: LA, CA, Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA, and Museum of Fine Arts: Ghent, Belgium.

Baldwin Gallery happily presents our first show with artist Austin Eddy. Eddy’s practice: drawings, paintings, and sculpture, seem visually anchored in the optimism of the early last century. Idols of meaning and handiwork, labor and maker arts entwine and echo forth. In the current body of work, Eddy creates a virtual murmuration of abstracted natural forms, clear symbols that lead the viewer to both contemplation and hope.

Austin Eddy is from Cambridge, MA and received his BFA from Chicago Art Institute in 2010. He is beginning to be shown extensively in both the United States and Europe, and additionally curates and lectures about art.
