The artist’s childhood, with its tiny apartments and the lurking shadow of political oppression, demanded a closeness with others that was at once comforting and stifling. The memory of these situations and emotions is reflected in the density of Baras’ painted surfaces. Layers of pattern in the paintings, evoking old lace and textiles, often placed on a glowingly textured background, create airless and closed miniature worlds.
