Baum makes fresh and invigorating connections with an increasingly ignored nature. The young artist was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2009, where the judges included Ellen Gallagher, Saskia Olde Wolbers, John Stezaker and Wolfgang Tillmans, who reviewed over 10,000 slides and hundreds of videos to bring together the showcase of contemporary talent. Baum’s ‘Lunar Mare’ series received high praise from Wolfgang Tillmans himself: "It’s a very specific vision-it’s definitely something I have never seen before and it is an achievement."
Furthermore, Myka’s work followed on to be selected for long-term display at Arts Council England alongside only 9 other recent New Contemporaries.
