Greg Baker’s skills are diverse and the range and breadth of his subject matter is extraordinary. He has mastered the spectrum of visual art mediums and is celebrated for his oils, pastels and acrylics. His paintings are figurative as well as much acclaimed seascapes, landscapes and cityscapes. His calligraphic technique is and always has been his own and his intention is to capture the visual impression of the moment, particularly in terms of light, colour and movement.
From Greg’s paintings you can recognise two particular loves in his life. First, the coastal waters of Western Australia, particularly around Rottnest Island, allow him to display a remarkable ability to paint the play of light on water; and second, his annual pilgrimages to Europe provide him with the opportunity to capture its countryside, villages and cities, particularly Paris and Venice.
