Final Studies: Jake Baker

Graduate Student, Kent State University


Title of Exhibition: Index to Boundaries

My work represents a sampling of events that spans ten years of my life, during which I deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. These paintings narrate my memories of combat through a system that combines automatism with the parameters of ballistic probability and addresses the psychological effects of warfare through symbolism.
