We are delighted to present Greg Baker’s second exhibition here at Gallows Gallery.
“Dreamstate ” is a collection of ideas stemming from my dreams and “daydreams” experienced while in the Aude region in the South of France earlier this year. I have painted the kind of oddities and impossibilities that filled my subconscious mind – Night skies over a sunny landscape.
Impossible colour combinations as in Neon Gothic, St Felix-Mystique and Medieval Garden. Pierrot the slightly melancholic but “hopeful” clown wandering the streets of the medieval villages. Dogs and cats falling from the sky…. even more improbable as my subject matter “Gerry” (a gangly pup living in France) encountering “Ally” our indoor studio cat here in Perth.- Greg Baker 2017
