CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:(none at this time)--------------------
In late 2015, Somerville, MA artist Jim Baab's passions for food, geometry, and illusion suddenly merged. While photographing ornamental gourds on the kitchen counter, by accident, the live, Rorschachian symmetry of an in-camera, digital "reflection" effect set Jim on a journey to search for and capture the familiar within the mundane.
At the intersections of gastronomy and geometry, still-life and biology, sensual and grotesque, Jim's mind's eye expeditions have produced demons, angels, parasites, masks, mysterious patterns, and otherworldly artifacts, flora and fauna. Yet, each image is an opportunity for the viewer to see something different in what is presented.
