Check out the gallery of exuberant, life-affirming paintings by Mary Lynn Baker.
Baker’s dancers are curvy and vivacious and living in the moment. Their outfits match their exuberant mood. Mary Lynn Baker’s oil paintings and papier mache sculptures feature real people kicking back and having a good time. When the beat goes on, the feet get going.
Her favourite subject is ordinary people, mostly women, who are transported out of their everyday personae. As she puts it, “Nothing shows that as well as when they are so moved by music that they have to get up and dance. Music takes people out of themselves, transports them to another level.”
