Baldwin Gallery is delighted to present an eighth exhibition by artist George Stoll. Known for his totemic visual exploration of objects from everyday life and popular culture, Stoll focuses on familiar midcentury themes and aesthetic: reverently rendered idols of a more earnest America. Stoll seeks the most evocative aspect of each celebration and ceremony and connects it with the viewer’s most intimate search for lost time. In the current body of work, Stoll turns to the iconographic trappings of our modern Sparta. Stoll’s ‘Hollywood’ camouflage compositions are intricately constructed of iridescent silk organza, the tiny stitches a binary time-marking, binding together the disparate worlds of beauty, glamour, and violence.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1954, George Stoll lives and works in Los Angeles. His art is found in such public collections as the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, Brandeis University-Rose Art Museum, University of Washington-Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
