About the Exhibition
Syd Baker solo exhibition
Syd Baker loves landscape painting. Who knew that this Kansas City Art Institute painting major would jump from Rocky Mountain hikes– watercolor kit in the backpack, into digital fantasy landscapes.
The artist is known for his character-based, sci-fi stories in 3D: the "Blue Man" series, and "The Deepening Bosk", featuring heroine, Jemma.
In Jemma's Gift: 04 - Genuine Red Rocket Space Patrol Lunchbox, a gentle giant alien, Jemma's mentor, holds out his hand for the gift of a rare lunchbox. Jemma's cat looks on. The surrounding detail is like that of a doll house, but the sensitivity of Jemma's Gift is sweet and lifelike, right out of an animated adventure story.
Fans of alien landings won't want to miss Blue Man 08: Hangliding. Blue Man hang glides through a dramatically lit, Vue Esprit-created island-scape. In a delightful twist, the green chute reveals its true identity as a dragon.
