Bio

David Graeme Baker (b. 1968) is originally from South Africa. He is a graduate of Wesleyan University and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. David's paintings exemplify his meticulous eye for detail. He gives heightened importance to mundane moments and emotional resonance through his long process of planning, doing studies, and taking his time to craft his assembled imagery and implied narratives. He lives with his wife and two sons in Hancock, Maine.

"The landscape of Maine and depictions of my family and friends within its embrace are the catalysts for my paintings. Realism anchors my work, though I purposefully conflate reality and fiction to imbue the images with enigmatic, yet evocative dreamlike meaning.”
