Opening Sunday, December 6, 2009 – 4-7pm

Visual artist Jessica Baker’s work has been lauded by The New York Times as, "brilliant…subtle…absolutely beautiful," and featured on National Public Radio.

Her window installation, "Seasonal Fall", presents a final glimpse of the retreating season’s majesty. Seasonal Fall represents the culmination of the artist’s three-year journey collecting fall leaves from the parks and streets of Brooklyn.

" …[the] all too short-lived prints resonate in the mind long after one leaves the show. They are absolutely beautiful."- NY Times


"…the leaves are like a one-of-a-kind piece of paper…highlight[ing] the leaf’s singular beauty." – The Brooklyn Daily Eagle

"By using a leaf that has fallen from a tree in November, I try to capture a moment in the growth and life cycle of a tree and to convey its transient beauty," explains Baker. “It is perhaps this ongoing transformation through the inexorable passage of time, this mirroring of life, that has the greatest effect on me."

Jessica Baker lives and works in Brooklyn, where she collects her materials from the streets and parks of Brooklyn, and creates all of her own prints on a table-top etching press in her studio near the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Her prints have been presented in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and internationally. For more information, visit www.jessicabaker.net.
