The Newest NEW, the Hottest HOT, the Freshest FRESH has always been sought after; the need to evolve is a necessity. Art has followed the same path, without constant evolution work becomes stale and irrelevant quickly. NEW WORK - BAC is a survey of work from the last year from the Bakehouse’s newest residents. These 20 artists work across all media and proudly produce their art within the walls of BAC’s immense facility.
A true hands-on sense of materiality is present with all producing their own work, owning the craft as well as the concepts behind each project. Departures from traditional methods of sculpture are evident with the presence of sex dolls, buttons, packing materials, polygons and eyeballs made from porcelain. Painting is interpreted through sensed portraits and imagined landscapes exploring feelings and forgotten spaces. Swimming pools, the Ocean and vacant urban settings pour through the photographs, inspired by living in Miami. All work was made this year or last, guaranteeing the freshest fresh and newest new BAC has to offer.
Artists include: Amanda Bradley, Gianna Riccardi, Scott Brennan, Maritza Caneca, Bernadette Despujols, Augusto Esquivel, Gabriela Garcia, Nicole Maynard-Sahar, Sean Mick, Aurora Molina, Isabela Muci, Myung Nam An, Rolando Peña, Sandra Ramos, Mary Ellen Scherl, Lauren Shapiro, Alejandra Suarez, Tonya Vegas, Clara Toro and Pedro Wazzan.
