About

John Baker’s “Mountain Embrace” is an acrylic painting with collage on canvas 67 x 46 x 1.5 inches in pinks, blues, greens and yellows. The cluster of intertwined, nearly life size figures floats apparition-like and weightless in a stratospheric realm. Dressed in floral garments suggestive of a sensual celebration, the figures in the cluster resemble a constellation so bright that it is visible in the daytime sky. 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 influence of 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.
