Rushern Baker

Rushern Baker’s paintings mix traditional media with building materials in complex compositions, evoking landscapes that refer back to the urban and suburban environment. Additional points of reference include the writings of Octavia Butler, Black abstraction, the New York School, and Soviet Constructivism. These myriad ideas shape Baker’s studio practice, characterized by a sense of lawlessness, similar to that of the subjects that fascinate him.
