Vivienne Baker’s paintings originate from particular places of personal experience. Using a slow layering technique in oils, they can take months to complete. The daily rhythm of studio time is central to this process – often this is just a layer a day. Baker works in series and although the work presently stems from landscape experiences, the results are often abstract. Currently Baker’s work involves reflections and surface.
