Interior scene by British/Australian artist Bob Baker-Robert G Baker (1937-2018). Born in 1937, England, he studied at the Stockport Technical College, won his first art prize at 10 years of age, and was the youngest British artist to be admitted to the British Artists Society.
He and his wife travelled extensively throughout Europe before emigrating to Sydney in 1972. Baker was a founding member of the Camden Art Prize Committee and a successful exhibiting artist within the group as well as being a regular entrant and finalist in the Art Gallery NSW Wynne and Sulman prizes, 1986, 1979, 1977, 1978.
After suffering adverse health, Bob and his wife moved from Sydney to the South Coast town of Bodalla; where he continued to paint; his focus shifting inwardly to painting for personal fulfillment whilst turning away from the commercial art world. Baker’s paintings during this period were explorations into his deep fascination with the world of physics, volume and space.
Upon his death in 2018, the Camden Art Prize named a prize section in honor of his work and founding membership.
