unnamed-14Brittany Baldwin received her MFA from Pratt Institute and BFA from Adelphi University where she received the Hugh A. Wilson Award for Excellence in Abstraction. Solo exhibitions include Serious Fun at Pratt Institute and Brainsugar at Adelphi University. She has participated in several group exhibitions at Pratt Institute, Con Artist Gallery, Adelphi University, and See Exhibition Space. This past October she completed a mural for the Department of Transportation through their Barrier Beautification initiative. Ms. Baldwin was born and raised in Queens, NY, where she still lives and works.

“I am interested in highlighting individual characters of language. Specifically, my paintings reference alphabets that utilize logograms, such as ancient glyphs, graffiti, and elements of graphic design. A logogram is a letter, symbol, or sign used to represent a word or phrase that can carry information through a few calculated strokes. Due to the character’s complexity in meaning, the relationship it has to its own shape and rhythm is fertile ground for visual investigation.

By approaching abstraction through this lens, I play with the potential relationship between line, form, and color. Color allows me to capture a sense of vibrancy I find in the cultures utilizing such languages. Playfulness in abstraction frees the characters from their original contexts and positions them in a new visual space where further meaning can be found.”
