Notes

Included in the Columbia Threadneedle Prize Exhibition in 2018, Le Confluence depicts a small apartment in Lyon, France where the artist stayed briefly. It is part of an ongoing series of works which depict semi-social spaces and the objects within them. Hotel rooms, class rooms, thoroughfares, train stations and short lease apartments are rendered still and silent, belying the transitory and chaotic nature of their purpose.

Richard Baker’s painting practice is an investigation into the hidden human histories behind seemingly insignificant objects. Often ignored, they bear witness to sensuous activity, be it remembered, lived, forgotten, or mythologised. In these modestly scaled works, the depicted objects are presented dislocated and appear as unadorned formal arrangements in a painterly restaging of the interrelationship of material, image, object and time.
