Atara Baker

Israeli, b. 1936

International artist Atara Baker’s collage paintings reflect the influences of Israel, South Africa and the US.  Her powerful canvases embrace the aesthetic of the San(bush people) of South Africa, with whom she studied drawing and mask making. Her work is a search for the primeval, filtered through her personal associations and experiences. By combining abstract form and rich earth-colored acrylic paint, coarse fabrics and found industrial objects, Baker weaves together historic tribal expression with modern abstraction and confronts us with the clash of modernity and tradition in tribal societies.

Her work resides in private collections in Israel, Mexico, South Africa and the US. She works out of her studio in San Diego, California.
