Ahbyah Baker Recent Works April 26th – May 5th Reception *Saturday*, April 26th, 8PM  Dynamo Arts Association is pleased to present Ahbyah Baker’s Recent Works. In 2012, Baker was selected as a finalist for the RBC Painting Competition for her painting Dripshape25. This painting along with those previously exhibited at Or Gallery, Shudder Gallery and CSA Space is part of a continuum, showing Baker to be a dedicated, prolific painter with a rapidly expanding body of work.  Baker employs an extensive process-based approach to painting. Through decisive layering, dripping, and removal of paint, she creates loose geometric forms that play with degrees of perceived surface tension. These forms possess a phantasmal quality, levitating off of or sinking deep into their minimalist grounds. Aspirations of vraisemblance are invoked and a romantic notion that one can find a truism within the act of painting; where a process can be utilized so it is the paint, that comes to dictate the artists hand. Baker states:“I think of my paintings as objects of discovery; discovery being in the process of making and in the process of viewing. I work within a mutable set of minimal parameters where I explore painterly elements such as form, colour, line and composition in a series of innumerable recombinations. The elements I work with are muted and discrete in their character, devoid of projecting any descriptive or explanatory appearances. In viewing these works I hope one sees what is experienced in he making of them. A process which manifested something of an abstract nature, something intangible and indescribable.”  Ahbyah Baker’s studio practice is based out of Vancouver. In 2006 she received her BFA from Emily Carr University. Exhibition Continues  April 26th – May 5th - open on Saturdays/Sundays  12pm - 6pm or by appointment: info@dynamoarts.org Dynamo Arts Association Suite 103 - 30 East 6th Ave Vancouver, British Columbia V5T 1J4

Yes! My friend Ahbyah’s work is excellent.

I’ve talked to this guy online off-and-on since I was 16…

…and I’m finally meeting him in Portland this weekend. He was always adorable and cute, but lately he’s just damn handsome. He’s super rad. Wish me luck.
