John Baker
"Old Man Releasing a Caged Bird", acrylic, portrait, collage, blue, brown

2020

$1,900

About

John Baker’s “Old Man Releasing a Caged Bird” is an imaginary portrait painting, acrylic on canvas with collage, 24 x 18 x 1.5 inches in browns, blues and flesh tones. The bird is depicted at the very moment of its liberation simultaneously confined by its cage and flying outside it. Signed and dated on the reverse, the painting is housed in a fine, hand carved Mid-Century Modern frame 4.75 inches wide. 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.
