Ronnie Baker is a contemporary New Zealand artist based in Nelson.
In my practice, I focus on staying curious. I am fascinated by nature. The smallest runnel of water, pattern on rock or lichen on a tree holds beauty. I try to carry my sketchbook
wherever I can, making drawings to capture a moment spent out in nature. Back in the studio, I allow the work to evolve as I explore the ways in which landforms interact with each other and I endeavour to capture the intangible in paint. I gain so much joy from the challenging process of abstraction, distilling feelings and experiences into forms of colour that vibrate and intrigue. I relish the knowledge that I can create a unique shared moment between my art and the viewer, however and whenever that may unfold.
I work mostly in acrylic on canvas, paper or board.

Based in The Brook, Nelson
