This Studio Sale presents 8 paintings direct from the studio of the multi award-winning artist, Richard Baker.
Richard's work has won awards including The Hix Award, and the Wells Art Contemporary Patron's Prize, and has been exhibited in the Lynn Painter Stainer's Prize exhibition and The John Moores Painting Prize. Some of the paintings selected for these prizes and exhibitions are now being offered in Richard Baker's first studio sale. With exhibitions cancelled in the last year due to Covid-19, this is an opportunity to collect Richard's work direct from his studio and to support the artist to build on the success of recent years.
Richard Baker's painting practice investigates 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 from their conventional domestic settings and isolated within an intangible space. The objects appear as unadorned formal arrangements in a painterly restaging of the interrelationship of material, image, object and time.
