Angela Baum is a painter living in Bristol, England. Although largely an abstract painter, occasional images – often Biblical – can appear in Angela Baum’s painting. Not infrequently, a series or – otherwise described – a linked set of paintings can be seen together, paintings linked usually by theme but sometimes by more tangible or at any rate chromatic connections.

If we wanted to try and classify all of these paintings conceptually, we might risk saying that these paintings are their own existence, or, rather, a putting into question of their own existence, or a quintessentially modern raising and putting into question the conditions of their own existence.
