Vessels is a grouping of Baker’s most recent works. These paintings depict potted plants in the controlled setting of a greenhouse; a delicate structure which protects its contents from the harshness of the elements, while simultaneously utilizing the environment to its benefit.


Through use of perspective and subject matter, Baker explores the parallels between the potted plant and humanity, speaking to the fragility and codependence of both upon outside forces bigger than themselves.


Vessels is a nod to the beauty of the collective, the power of the individual and the interconnectedness of humanity with the land. Everything is at the mercy of nature and survival  is dependent upon the ability to work with it instead of against it; acknowledging the “glass house” we live within.
