About

John Baker’s “New Year’s Eve”, a 60 x 30 inch acrylic painting with collage on canvas, is an elaborate image of the annual, raucous celebration in reds, yellows and blues. Festivity is everywhere: in the presence of Neo-Impressionist confetti, in the crisscrossing lights in the sky, and in the revelers’ costumes, whose fragmentary discontinuities are echoed in the form of the custom-designed “collage frame”. 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.
