Liam Ross Baker

My name is Liam Ross Baker, I am an emerging contemporary artist based in Hobart, Lutruwita, Tasmania. I have just completed my studies for my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the CAM (Creative Arts and Media), at the University of Tasmania. My work is often found to be exploring human experience and complication through figurative abstraction rooted in surrealism and modernism. My practice is one that tends to lean toward the use of figures, structures, objects, colour and more to convey narrative, emotion, and relationship to senses. My work has been exhibited in galleries such as Gallerie 71, and most recently having been a finalist in the Henry Jones Art Prize 2021, also taking home the packing room prize.

Upon encountering the paintings, I hope for the viewer to find some form of painterly correspondence between the viewer and the work, a multitude of experiences being used as filters to dissect what it is that sits Infront of them. These structures are or have been without a state of catharsis, an inadequate means of releasing what resides within, or alternately to find what resides within. I am seeking to show the hidden experience, the osculation and fragmentation within, to explore the essence of being and our unfabricated and sometimes unsightly truths.
