Artist's Statement

Welcome! My name is Jim Baab (rhymes with cab) and I have been participating in Somerville Open Studios since 2013. I have no studio and my equipment is low-end; yet, my photographic experiments with light, line, and illusion have won awards and been chosen for juried exhibitions in the United States and Europe. I am passionate about the human figure, food, and geometry; and, sometimes, those themes can converge. One example is my oldest illusion from 1994: a still-life, nude "portrait" of a red pepper and Brussels sprout that was inspired by Edward Weston’s ‘Pepper No. 30’. This year, in addition to showing an unofficial expansion set for the classic family board game 'Chutes and Ladders', a renovated children's playhouse, and a selection of erotic art created by prompting artificial intelligence, I am continuing to design and offer print-on-demand fashion, accessories, and home furnishings via "Jim Baab Photo Lab" on and "ThatJimBaabGuy" on Thank you for supporting local artists!
