Kelsey Baker

About the Artist

Kelsey Baker (b. 1993) is an intermedia artist based in Austin, TX who received her MFA from Washington State University in 2020. She was the recipient of a King Creativity Fund Grant in 2015 and the Walter Milton Potter Prize in 2016. In 2019, she was awarded the John Ludwig Graduate Fellowship. Her work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions nationally, such as the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Pullman, WA; Craighead Green Gallery, Dallas, TX; Off the Cost, Portland, OR; The People's Gallery, Austin, TX; Terrain Gallery, Spokane, WA; and Gspot Gallery, Houston, TX.

Artist Statement

I am using intermedia practices--incorporating painting, video and installation--to invent surreal landscapes and evoke liminal spaces. I present the familiar as strange using distortions in placement and scale, allowing the viewer access to realms or states of being that might be otherwise inaccessible. Viewers are invited to experience the in-between spaces.

_

My most recent body of work presents multiple thresholds that offer imaginary access to Void-like spaces, and bodily experiences of these spaces that are felt rather than lived. Like standing at the edge of a cliff and imagining, despite oneself, how the ordeal of actually falling might feel. Edge moments like these invite one to live out, mentally, the mortal possibilities presented by the situation. The paintings are not portals, as such, but invite the viewer to experience a thinning of the veil. Together, these works induce liminality, and enact a push and pull of seduction and repulsion that recalls the sensation of edge moments and draws the viewer's awareness to their experience of place and time.
