Alan Baker

Alan Baker is interested in the relationships between humans and animals, exploring the idea of the animal as practitioner and how different species transform space in our everyday urban environments. In his recent work he explores the term ‘Vermin culture’; a term given to various species of animal which are considered a ‘pest’. This inspired him to produce a number of sculptures made from various found objects that I placed in a deranged manner, giving the illusion of an unstable structure that could trap or snare an animal. He has used traditional drawing techniques with a contemporary aesthetic to document these temporary structural forms. Biography Alan Baker completed a MA in Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2013 and a BA Hons degree in Contemporary Art from the University of Huddersfield.
