Introducing Finkelstein Gallery Artist, Kate Baker.
Kate 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.
“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.” – Nick Mitzevich, Director of the National Gallery of Australia
