VERNISSAGE: New Paintings by Abel Baker Gutierrez
End of residency exhibition - 19.8.12

Los Angeles artist, Abel Baker Gutierrez exhibits a new series of intimately sized paintings made during his two month residency at 111 - ein zeitgenössischer Ort für Kunst, Berlin. Sourced from found photographs of German children and youths, Gutierrez's paintings explore ideas of longing, nostalgia and mis-rememberance. Several paintings draw parallels between American and German masculine ideals found in pfadfinder/scouting imagery. Portrait photographs and images of summer adventures are re-contextualized through the act of painting.
