I have a confession to make, Artsies. I have been remiss. Since the beginning of Artsy Forager, I’ve had Christina Baker listed as a Pick of the Crop artist, and save for a few mentions in Friday Faves and The Artsy Home, I have yet to feature her! Shame, shame, shame!! So to make it up to the lovely and always supportive, Christina, today you’re getting a two-fer!! One now and watch for a special The Artsy Home feature later.
This self-taught artist’s work is ever-evolving and intuitive. One of my favorite games to play with Christina’s abstract work is “What Do You See?”. In every piece, there is something that is familiar, yet fresh. In one instance, I may think I see a representation of one thing, but then I go back, take a second look and see something completely different.
Her use of color and light creates soft, yet powerful imagery, the kind of work that translates easily between contemporary and more traditional aesthetics.
I hope you loved Christina’s work as much as I obviously do. To see more, please visit her website! In Nashville, her work can be seen at York & Friends and at the Southern Living Showcase Home until November 6th ( more on that later!! ). For Atlanta folks, check her out at Gregg Irby Fine Art.
