Glen Baldridge is an accomplished painter, printmaker and draftsman, who in recent works has embedded sardonic phrases from youth sub-culture into ultra-complex painted patterns. Often working with traditional craft processes like paper marbling, he obscures the words’ readability with a deft hand. Fissures in the otherwise smooth paint on the surfaces of his paintings merge darkness with youth and beauty. Recurring phrases like “No Way”, and “Wait, What” invoke a detached attitude countered by a colorful palette, speaking to attempts to navigate the unpredictable conditions of our time.View CV
