John Baker
"I’ve Known Him for a Long Time", acrylic, portrait, collage, beige, grey, ochre

2021

$900

About

John Baker’s “I’ve Known Him for a Long Time” is an acrylic painting on canvas with collage 16 x 12 inches in beige, ochre and dark grey. The two halves represent not so much a personality split as a merger of the two extremes of the life span. Even the “young side” exudes a contemplativeness that contributes to the overall sense of self-reflection expressed by the image. 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.
