In The Raft Of Perseus, Kirstin Baker’s subject changes from car racing to Greek mythology, though the connotations to abstract painting remain the same: adventure and risk translating to the stuff of legend. Picturing Perseus’s banished raft thrashing amidst the raging sea, Baker’s work operates as an analogy for the loneliness and heroism of artistic pursuit. Rendered in the pastoral blues and golds of religious painting, Baker captures the essence of challenge and success with stylised flourish. The solid geometric beams of the raft float in contrast to the water’s organic currents and the translucent light of the sky, creating a sense of staidness in the turbulent motion.
