Exhibiting in "Christopher Baker - 64 Days" at Kevis House Gallery, in conjunction with Moncrieff-Bray Gallery, 3 May - 24 May 2014
Christopher Baker is a Sussex based landscape painter. The artist spent 64 consecutive days in 2012 painting the view from the Trundle, a hill above Goodwood racecourse in West Sussex.
Like many artists before him, painting in series holds a fascination for Baker. He commented that, “committing myself to a constant view, ironically allowed extraordinary freedom to develop and experiment. It is the interaction of place and painter that is the true subject of the work, the reactions that are elicited from a place”.
Baker has previously exhibited at Pallant House Art Gallery, Chichester, Petworth House and The Royal Academy, as well as internationally. He has won major awards from the Royal Academy and Canadian and British Arts Councils. He is senior fine art painting tutor at West Dean College in Sussex and runs the School of Landscape Painting. Baker also recently starred in the critically acclaimed 2010 film Archipelago, alongside Tom Hiddleston.
