DENISE BIBRO FINE ART presents Claudia Doring-Baez’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Outside It: Paintings..

Doring-Baez’s current works are inspired by the famous late French photographer Brassaï’s photographs of Paris by night, everyday Parisian life, and photos of Picasso’s sculptures. Doring-Baez shares Brassaï’s love of romance, atmosphere, nightlife, and the enchanting Parisian lifestyle. The extraordinary and ordinary become fantastical. Doring-Baez delves inside of each of his images. She captures the spirit and character of the moment of that time.

Although Doring-Baez shares the same affinity for the subject matter; she develops her own interpretation of that moment of life and circumstance.

Doring-Baez’s interpretations become new Brassaï-ish vignettes with a totally new prospective and distinction. The work takes her to places Brassaï has been, but she has never. She immerses herself into a life of nuance, intrigue, naughtiness… brothels, prostitution, gay bars, and ménage à trois’…… The common is uncommon, the Risqué is par for the course.

Doring-Baez’s process is spontaneous and bombastic. Her love of the flow of drawing and sketching is reflected in her use of paint giving her work a raw freshness. It is more important to Doring-Baez that the forms and shapes in her paintings are fluid and that she creates amalgamations of the unexpected.

Doring-Baez has been painting since childhood, after she accompanied her mother, also a painter, to noted artist, Robin Bond’s studio in Tacubaya, Mexico. She has lived and painted in New York for the past thirty years. She received her B.A from Columbia University NYC, and her M.A from The New York Studio School, NYC, where she did her thesis work, inspired by Cindy Sherman. She has been in numerous exhibitions in New York City and Mexico.
