> DESCRIPTION

Civil Dusk, Jimmy Baker's second solo exhibition at Foxy Production, introduces a new series of intense and moody oil and resin paintings. In Civil Dusk – the period after the sun has edged below the horizon and objects are still distinguishable – Baker uses cloaks of fog, smoke, or dust, and disorienting inversions and combinations to make the known feel uncanny. Baker explores American landscape painting's myths of expansion and freedom, and its conjuring of sentiment and the sublime. He relates its strategies to those of the contemporary media, refracting scenes gleaned from television and the Internet through the lens of Romanticism.
