Gabrielle Bakker

Gary Faigin reviews the exhibition Gabrielle Bakker A Decade: 2001-2011 at Davidson Gallery, Seattle on view through May 28, 2011. Faigin writes that Bakker "cobbl[es] together highly original pictures from a huge array of sources, whose only common element is that the artist finds them worthy. It is one thing to appreciate art and artists from places as disparate as Classical Rome and Greece, Renaissance Italy and Flanders, and early 20th Century Paris; it is quite another to attempt to put together coherent pictures in which all of these influences – and more - are in play."
