Teresa Baker (b.1985) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Through a mixed media practice combining artificial and natural materials together, Baker creates abstracted landscapes that explore vast space, and how we move, see and explore within them. The materials, texture, shapes, and color relationships are guided by Baker’s Mandan/Hidatsa culture to explore how identity can relate to innate objects.
Baker has had recent solo exhibitions at de boer, Los Angeles, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ; Pied-à-terre, San Francisco; Interface Gallery, Oakland; and The Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont, TX. Recent group exhibitions include Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, TX, Nerman Museum, Kansas City, KS, and Marin MOCA, Marin, CA. She will be included in the upcoming edition of Made In LA: Acts of Living, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA. Baker is a 2022 Joan Mitchell Fellow and was an artist-in-residence at Fogo Island Arts in Newfoundland in 2022. Baker was the 2020 Native American fellow at the Ucross Foundation in Ucross, WY, and has been an artist-in-residence at MacDowell in Peterborough, NH, and a Tournesol Award artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, CA. Her work is in the public collections of Whitney Museum of American Art, Portland Museum of Art, and Forge Project, among others. Baker received her B.A. from Fordham University, and MFA from California College of the Arts.
