Nancy Baker
Nancy Baker, Cave, 2018, painting, collage on board, 12 x 12 inches




These new paintings and works on paper are the outgrowth of experimentation that seeks to bring the work to a newer outpost of Baker’s search for an honest self-revelation. The new small paintings are predicated by a fascination with caves, both as a viewer from inside them and outside them. Fascinated by the cave paintings of Joseph Wright of Derby, whose works “were a significant record of the struggle of science against religious values in the period known as the Age of Enlightenment.” It seems appropriate once again to find solace in the scientific method, and her work still has significant interest in numbers and ratios found in objects and space. Nancy Baker earned her BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the US, including ODETTA in Brooklyn, NY; Front Room Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; Mark Moore Gallery, CA; Winkleman Gallery, NYC; Schema Projects, Brooklyn, NY; Marcia Wood Gallery, Atlanta, GA; Greenhill Center, Greensboro, NC; Jancar Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; NC Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC; 1708 Gallery, Richmond VA; Heriard Cimino Gallery in NOLA; and Lump Gallery, Raleigh, NC. She has received numerous awards, including two North Carolina Artists Fellowships, a Tennessee Individual Artist Fellowship, and an NEA Southern Arts Fellowship. She was awarded a commission with MTA Arts and Design for two train stations in Brooklyn, which was fabricated in stainless steel. Last year she was commissioned to create a new work for Karen Brooks Hopkins, the Director of Brooklyn Academy of Music. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections including the International Collage Center, Bucknell, PA; US Embassy, Kiev, Ukraine; North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh NC; Wellington Art Collection, Boston; Memorial Sloan Kettering; City of Raleigh Municipal Art Collection, Raleigh, NC;; MCI Corporation, Raleigh NC; Reynolds Industries, Winston-Salem, NC; Herman Miller, New York, NY; Bellevue Hospital Center, New York, NY; TRW, Cleveland, OH; American Hospital Corporation, Nashville, TN; First Nation Bank, Nashville, TN, among others. She has participated in several artist residencies including Casa de Mateus, Vila Real, Portugal, and Studio Camnitzer, Valdottavo, Italy. She is also a curator and was the owner and director of the Tireshop Gallery in Raleigh NC. Coming up next year, her curated exhibit, “Particulate Matter ,will be shown at Project: ARTspace in New York.
