John Baker
"Siblings: An Imaginary Portrait", acrylic, collage, painting, blue, white, pink

2019

$900

About

John Baker’s “Siblings: An Imaginary Portrait” is an acrylic painting on canvas with collage 11 x 9 x 1.5 inches in pinks, blues and whites. A quintessential image of gender, the painting describes two siblings, apparently twins, as one bi-gendered individual. The image is totally realistic; its placid innocence makes no comment on the great revolution in understanding that has occurred socially. 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.
