Jimmy Baker is inaugurating Foxy Production’s new location in Chelsea. “Civil Dusk” is Jimmy Baker’s second solo exhibition at Foxy Production. The show introduces a new series of intense and moody oil and resin paintings. “Baker explores American landscape painting’s myths of expansion and freedom, and its conjuring of sentiment and the sublime… His new paintings exhibit a dramatic high gloss sheen that is at once seductive and distancing: they act as both screens and mirrors.” (PR Foxy Productions).
Jimmy Baker was born in 1980 in Dover, Ohio. He lives and works in Cincinnati, Ohio. He holds a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA from The University of Cincinnati.
Civil Dusk marks the opening of Foxy Production’s new gallery space at 623 West 27th Street in New York City.
Impressions from the opening, October 17, 2008.
