Baumgartner is best known for monumental woodcuts based on her own films and video stills, giving her work a sense of movement and temporality. Shooting her own videos, including occasionally filming her television screen, Baumgartner painstakingly renders stills onto wood, creating a moiré effect by gouging out a relief of the image between narrowly spaced horizontal lines. The huge airplanes in Transall (2002-2004) embody the tension in Baumgartner’s oeuvre between the speed implicit in her themes and the slow laboriousness of her medium.
