A selection of recent paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Leonard Baby. A painter since childhood, Baby has always been drawn to the medium as a way of expressing themself. Influenced by artists like Mary Cassatt, Edvard Munch, and Lisa Yuskavage, Baby’s acrylic paintings focus primarily on the role of the feminine in the world. They borrow their subject matter from cinema, most often films directed by Jane Campion, Angela Schanelec, and Sofia Coppola. In their most recent work, Baby aims to capture grief as a reaction to death, though they are sure to keep the work whimsical and sometimes humorous in execution.
