America: Ideomerica and the Terminal Century

A Discussion with R.C. Baker and Sharon Butler

Saturday, February 18, 2PM at Jennifer Baahng Gallery

On Saturday, February 18, 2023, at 2 PM, gallery artists R.C. Baker and Sharon Butler will delve into the ways their work grapples with today’s digital miasma, as well as what culture critic Greil Marcus famously termed “the old, weird, America.” In Butler’s “Idiomerica” series, painted pixels collide with inkjet prints of household tools, layered images that conjure the capitalist sprawl of the suburbs. In his series “The Terminal Century,” Baker’s psychedelically bright, painted collages imagine how the Blues and the Bomb bookended history’s most — at least, so far — violent century.
