Artist Statement:
I am an artist working with labor-intensive mark-making, textile manipulation, and sculpture to examine the roles of imagination and effort as shared, necessary tools of both the artist and the utopian. I make work about people without depicting them by scrambling found objects, textures, and highly rendered surfaces to create the lonely interiors and blueprints of newly imagined worlds. I pay attention to the historically under-recognized depth of female experience: the ghostly trace of women’s past lives, the earnestness of present-day feminism/s and queerness, and the aspirational hopefulness (and often, contradictory aims) of utopian liberation.  

Mara Baldwin received an MFA from the California College of the Arts (2010) and a BA from Wesleyan University (2006). Solo exhibitions of Baldwin's work have been recently presented at Binghamton University (2019), Hobart and William Smith Colleges (2018), Wells College (2018), and the Johnson Art Museum of Cornell University (2015). Baldwin's work has been featured at Facebook Manhattan, PLAySPACE (CCA), the San Francisco Arts Commission, SOMArts, UC Berkeley, Triple Base Gallery, Root Division, Capricious Space/Company, and Corners Gallery. Accolades include the Murphy Cadogan Award, nominations for the Joan Mitchell Fellowship and SFMoMA SECA Award, and awarded residencies with Ucross (2018), Millay (2018), Djerassi (2013), Saltonstall (2011), and the Vermont Studio Center (2010). Baldwin currently lives in Ithaca, New York, where she directs Ithaca College’s Handwerker Gallery, and an independent project space called NEIGHBORS out of her garage.
