Catalogue Note

“Somehow this snapshot just spoke to me. It dawned on me to paint over this found little photograph, leaving the two women alone in black and white. I knew that my buddy would enjoy this, being of the same sensibility. I was an advertising art director at the time doing serious photography on the side. Collecting snapshots went along with collecting postcards that were the inspirations for my first paintings. What drew me to them was that they were like miniature paintings that captured a specific time and place, a recording of a time that would inevitably pass. I would want to be a social anthropologist if I wasn’t an artist.” -John Baeder, 2018
