FSU Art Associate Professor Carrie Ann Baade was recently featured in several publications, including Poets & Artists, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, 50 Badass Figurative Artists on Instagram, Miroir Magazine: Myth & Majesty, and Hi Fructose.
Carrie Ann Baade is known for her allegorical oil paintings. These painted parables combine remnants of Renaissance and Baroque imagery, creating surreal landscapes inhabited by exotic flora, fauna, and figures. As a contemporary painter, she returns to the relevant moments in art history in order to reclaim them, not merely as a quotation of a theme or an image, but also as the materiality of methods and techniques that ultimately create them.
Carrie was awarded the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs Individual Artist Fellowship in 2010, the Delaware Division of the Arts Fellowship for Established Artist in 2005, and was nominated for the prestigious United States Artist Fellowship in 2006 and the Joan Mitchell Grant in 2012. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions: the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, the Rosenfeld Gallery in Philadelphia, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles, the Ningbo Art Museum in China, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida.
As a native born Louisianan, Carrie has deep southern roots but she has traveled and studied painting history & techniques around the world. She received her Masters in Painting from the University of Delaware and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago that included one year of study at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. The NY ARTS Magazine, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Austin Chronicle, the Albuquerque Journal, and Philadelphia Today have featured her work. She currently lives and works in Tallahassee where she is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Florida State University.
