About

John Baker’s “Her Beautiful Thoughts” is a 23.5 x 19.5 x 1.5 inches acrylic painting with collage on canvas in light pinks and blues and deep russets. The active dispersion of small droplets and splashes of the brightest colors about and through the head of the woman’s many selves creates an image of the radiances of her spirit. The sides are unpainted and the painting is signed and dated on the reverse. 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.
