John Baker
"At the Easel", acrylic, canvas, collage, portrait, flesh tones, red, blue

2018

$2,400

About

John Baker’s “At the Easel” is a 36 x 30 inch acrylic on canvas with collage in midnight blue, lobster red and flesh tones. Calculated ambiguities and impossibilities are everywhere throughout the imaginary portrait: who is the artist and which part of the image is the real work of art? Is the painting finished or in progress? Is the sitter a model at all or is she the (only) artist? The painting is signed and dated on the reverse and is housed in a hand-carved, mid-century modernist frame of high quality. John Baker is a widely exhibited painter based in Boston and New York whose solo exhibitions have been favorably reviewed in the Boston Globe (his paintings demonstrate that the human figure as a source of fresh ideas still endures), Art New England (Baker’s collages raise a bunch of interesting issues) and American Art Collector (John Baker’s wonderful and worthy project). A native of New York City, Baker was a pupil of Donald Judd for two years. The sculptor’s constructivist method remains an influence on Baker’s collage process, but Baker’s artistic results are more sensual and emotional as he adds the elements of subtle color harmony and reliance on impulse. Baker is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
