Marie Baldwin Gallery debuts with a gala event at a Rodney Walker house in Belair on May 6th, 2017. The event will open the exhibition titled 'Lookatme,' an exclusive peek at the works of Los Angeles-based artists Edvarda Braanaas and Tommii Lim.
Juxtaposing the energy of feminine and masculine personas and perceptions, as well as the past and the present, the exhibit is a statement about human nature in the context of seeing and being seen. Edvarda Braanaas is a highly recognized and collected painter from Norway. In 'Lookatme,' she explores universal themes: strength, trust, powerlessness, and love. Tommii Lim was born in South Korea and is a phenomenon in Los Angeles, producing murals, film, canvases, and special collections of skateboards, basketballs and shoes for high profile athletes. In 'Lookatme,' Tommii Lim pushes the boundaries with his signature pared down imagery that echoes significant events in the world.
