Firecat Projects presents “6B”, a solo exhibition of Deborah Baker, a Chicago artist.
For the past several years, Deborah has been working on a body of work, embroideries and new drawings, involving word play, word association, double entendres, pun, encoded messages and symbols. Think of them as visual poems. They involve pattern, decoration, silhouette and x-ray, symmetry and balance. Often about very personal topics of love and relationships. 6B refers to the type of pencil used in the drawings.
She premarks or predraws very little or not at all, working directly with the paper or fabric, using the simplest of materials: paper and pencil, needle and thread. Beginning with a word or title and creating from there.
