Jo Baer was a key figure among the celebrated protagonists of Minimalist painting in New York in the 1960s and first half of the 70’s.

What has long been regarded as a radical transition from the earlier minimalist painting to the fluid and dreamlike pictorial mode that she famously came to term „radical figuration“, is [recently being] now perceived as a continuum rather than a paradigm shift. In the last decades Jo Baer has dramatically expanded the conceptual framework of her earliest minimalist paintings – not so much replacing one „ism“ with another, as reconciling and binding together her myriad and divergent concerns (ranging from the science of color perception to the workings of myth and collective memory.)
