DESCRIPTION

Walter Wickiser Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of  Dina Gustin Baker, A Retrospective: Paintings 1940 - 2012, from December 1st, 2012 - January 2nd, 2013. 

 

"Through its various aesthetic ins and outs Baker’s work mirrors a soulful and daring vision that is laced with restless imagination and that evidently is always up for a challenge. Ever the experimenter, the artist is seen wrestling with new pictorial combinations, testing the interplay of contrasting spatial formats and analyzing sequences of unusual color harmonies. 

The result has been a constant production of paintings punctuated with irresistible verve.  

Baker’s susceptibilities toward variability and risk-taking are matched by equal parts rigor and mindfulness. .”**
