-Large scale Portrait Painting Workshop in brooklyn, ny-
~November 18-22, 2019
Baugh has long been known for painting youth and beauty through the female form. In his recent body of paintings, Fractured Faces, he bends the concept of beauty by separating the elements of paint and celebrates shattering textures, harsh lines and bold color.
In each piece, the surface of the skin itself has been separated into shards of heavy impasto strokes often in saturated colors of pure primary cadmium reds, oranges and cobalt blues that lay almost abstractly over what the viewer feels should be soft skin. The opposing forces throw the eye into an almost conflicted mindset creating an emotional brutality that amplifies each part. As time passes, the viewer has to decide which direction to go as each opposing feeling pull the eye in different yet equally parallel emotions. Some viewers feel the soft beauty in the subject matter while others can only feel the heavy weight of texture , sharp lines and saturated color, but regardless, a choice is forced upon the viewer to decide whether to feel broken or whole. Baugh does not let us rest in the middle.
In this special 5-day workshop, students will explore a wide variety of new techniques while working on large format portrait paintings in Brooklyn, NY.
