Adam Baker Solo Exhibition At Karen Wray Gallery

Adam Baker
ART News:
Like most of Adam Baker’s paintings, it all started with a gunfight.
Baker, a painter who commonly depicts Western themes and is active in the reenactment scene in New Mexico, dreamed he was racing across the desert with a friend. They were reenacting a gunfight scene on horseback, giving chase across a dusty landscape. Guns were blazing and it was a chase reminiscent of any cowboy movie.
There was just one problem: Their horses were metal. They were also coin-operated.
“I woke up laughing.” Baker explains. “I thought, ‘I have to paint that.’”

Though artists are dedicated to providing reflection on our present and our past, with musings about the future, we often feel unsupported and taken-aback when queried; “Are you a local artist, or a professional?”, “An artist must suffer to be any good, right?” and “Why are you an artist when you have such talent for math?”
