BOB BAKER - A LIFE IN ART
(4.9.1937 to 22.2.2018)

memorial exhibition & sale
29 september to 28 october 2018

Bob Baker is one of those rare artists of the first rank whose real worth was never fully appreciated during his lifetime, except by those privileged to know him best.
Part of the reason was his location for the most productive and astonishing period of his artistic output, in the small NSW South Coast village of Bodalla, far from the artistic whirlwind of the metropolis. But mainly it was his own single-minded devotion to his work, with little or no care for the wealth and fame that he so richly deserved.
However, since his passing in February 2018, a group of his closest friends and supporters have gathered to bring his astonishing artistic legacy to the world. And we are delighted to be able to provide a window through this website to Bob Baker’s vision. It encompasses much of his life’s work and traces the development of his vision through many artistic genres, culminating in the last decade in an exploration of the mysteries and wonders of physics, but rendered with extraordinary painterly skills.
Indeed, whatever their scientific motif, they stand alone as masterpieces of concept and design that bring a powerful presence to any space, large or small, institutional of domestic.
