Lin Baum (BFA 1972)
The oil painting of Matt was executed from direct observation, while appropriating the spirit of the Baroque, in a 21st century work. It is important to me to affirm the humanity of Matt, while capturing his unique image. I believe in a world of increasing dehumanization, the importance of asking what we want being human to mean, is fundamental to our future.
