Chicana painter Scarlett Baily specializes in murals, live art, and portraits. Identity, multiculturalism, and belonging motivate Baily’s creative practice in her pursuit to correct history and celebrate diversity.
Common spaces and dialogues from portrait sittings serve as points of departure in Baily’s compositions. Overlooked icons and memories materialize in Baily’s large format figurative work. She revitalizes mundane subjects to create a divine relationship to them- whether they are familiar or not. Her intimate narratives recenter the personal experience- sparking curiosity while dismantling stereotypes and external constructions of identity.
Long sinuous lines and gestural minimalism mark Baily’s style. A black and white palette dominates her work and contributes to its immediacy. Baily appropriates a commercial style to appeal to a wider audience inviting mass interaction with contemporary social themes.
Baily often plays with her own multicultural bordertown background to solve the puzzle of belonging. Nostalgia of freeway and bridge grati along the US/Mexico divide inform her creative approach. Hence, the public arena stages her preferred exhibition space. Here she brings distant communities together to evoke critical thinking and foster empathy in places of spontaneous artistic encounter.
