Yevgeniya Baras has had solo exhibitions in New York at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery and Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, in Berlin at 68Projects, and in Los Angeles at the Landing. She's been included in recent group exhibitions in New York at Gavin Brown's Enterprise, Murray Guy, White Columns and Sperone Westwater. In 2018 Baras received a grant from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, and in 2014 she was awarded a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Grant. She recently completed residencies at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program in New York, and the MacDowell Colony Residency in New Hampshire. She received an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as two degrees from the University of Pennsylvania: a BA in Fine Arts and Psychology and an MS in Education. Baras uses a variety of material in her paintings, including wood, stones, and fabric. Her paintings often include lettering from the Roman and Cyrillic alphabets. These language fragments, combined with sunken objects, help the work to feel intensely personal, as if written in code. Baras lives and works in New York, where she co-founded the artist-run gallery Regina Rex which operated from 2010-2018.
