BEST SOLO EXHIBITION 

Anthony Baab

Critics' Choice

Kansas City artist Anthony Baab managed to collapse time and space in the nine large-scale, black-and-white inkjet photographs on display at Grand Arts last winter. Inspired by an old architecture textbook, Baab constructed 3-D models of cardboard and wood. His ambiguous structures, complex combinations of lines, planes and forms, seemed neither functional nor inhabitable. Baab photographed the structures and further modified them as digital images, adding surface textures and layering inkjet prints. The result was a series of elegant and uncanny works. And there was still more: Our favorite part was a live black-and-white video feed of cats climbing one of Baab's models in an undisclosed, underground location. This feline twist added an element of chance and whimsy to an already deeply fascinating exhibition.
