Original painting in oil on canvas.

"Traveling around the East coast of Canada I was struck with how the windswept buildings were constantly being repaired, repainted, re-roofed - a palimpsest to the effects of the weather that they had endures, every plank and nail a holding a story."

There is a palpable tension and edginess in Sophie Baker’s landscapes. Her deserted frontiers, abandoned quarries and overgrown woodlands bear witness to man’s intrusive activity and impact on the landscape. Her compositions suggest a recent exchange or happening, perhaps uncanny – and an atmosphere of hurried departure, of business unfinished.

The reference to human activity permeates the narrative of her compositions as evidenced in the object abandoned or longed for. There is an element of the ritual of human activity that is undefined, at times sinister and yet somehow portentous, and when figures do appear, they seem lost in thought, unguarded and altogether inextricable from their environment. 

This sense of drama, speaks of man’s ongoing attempt to interact with the land, make sense of it and define it, while being always entranced and consumed by it’s romance.
