BIO

Kate Baker is an Australian contemporary artist working across mediums. A current PhD Candidate at the Australian National University School of Art and Design, Baker’s work merges photography, film and print technologies with the mediums of studio glass and metal fabrication, erasing the traditional divisions between them.

Baker locks ghostly, elusive and suggestive images into layers of glass, mirror, and metal. Her themes are of a complex human environment, layered with physical, psychological and emotional strata.

More recently her practice has embraced the use of the moving and projected image in the creation of immersive video and sound installations, involving environments created with studio glass elements.

 

Baker’s works have been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally including at the Palm Springs Art Museum California, the New Mexico Museum of Art Santa Fe, the Corning Museum of Glass New York, the Toyama Museum of Glass Japan, the Alexander Tutsek Foundation in Munich, Germany, and the Glass Biennale in Venice, Italy. Both a finalist and winner of national and international art prizes, scholarships and grants, her artworks are featured in collections globally.

 

Baker’s work gives us a very sophisticated resolution of a glass medium that feels entirely contemporary and rooted in the moment of now. It is the fusion of both traditional practice and pushing the glass medium to blur the boundaries beyond a painting, beyond a photograph and beyond glass.’
