About

John Baker’s “Eclipse Chaser”, an acrylic painting on canvas with collage, 44 x 24 inches, depicts the inner human experience of a total solar eclipse. Deep solar orange counterpoints the rich greens and browns of the landscape and the luminous blues of the changing sky. Figure and landscape seem to merge in the awareness of this spectacular natural event. 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.
