About the Artist:
Bakker’s process exists out of doing extensive studies and planning. Working from real life models she creates multiple studies of her subject, then translating these into prototypes where she plays with composition and color. Bakker’s use of oil paint have a tempera quality that connect her work to Renaissance painting and the move from tempera to oil painting. She combines this with influences from cubism and Japanese art in conversation with contemporary subjects and objects to mix cultures in a new dialogue. She works diligently on creating a narrative inspired by the untold stories of mythological people and creatures, geishas, and the everyday. Driven by different styles from history her work becomes an amalgamation of past and present.
