Kristin Baker’s Ride The Lightning uses abstraction as a parallel for action. Inspired by motor racing culture, Baker’s work conveys all the dynamism of this macho arena: greasy, dirty, violent, and infinitely sexy. Painted on PVC, her ultra-sleek surface exudes both power and breakdown. Embedding stylised and graphic forms within a grid-like pattern, Baker references both cubism and futurism. Each square containing the charge of a freeze-frame explosion, haloed by dispersing clouds of light and smoke, Baker captures the unequivocal sensation of a single moment as a lingering, reverberated energy.
