James Kalm visits Yevgeniya Baras: Of Things Soothsaid and Spoken at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York, on view through March 29, 2015.

Kalm notes: "Yevgeniya Baras combines the rugged, physicality of found objects with an almost shamanistic reverence for their evocative potential. By melding the factual with a sophisticated sense of abstraction and its legacy, the artist teases out emotional responses that are embedded in the humble substance of simple images and day to day things."
