2013. Dottern har ännu inte börjat gå. Visioner om hur föräldraskapet skall fungera, den känslomässiga aspekten att vara någons mamma ställs på sin spets. En spets Lina L Baker börjar nysta i.

Vanligtvis när Lina L Baker arbetar, har hon hela projektet klart för sig. Nu har hon snarare låtit sig ledas vidare, av  minnen som framträtt i föräldraskapet. Skönhet, lugn, storslagenhet och en gnagande känsla av att allt kanske inte står rätt till.

2016. I utställningen Under exposed, inspirerad av barndomens innerstas djup. Kittlande. Oro blandad med glädje. De mörka vrårna, de man inte tittar i. Fantasins spelrum, barndom, folksaga, fantasi, där natur bildar fond men också kan agera, både huvudroll och biroll.

I verket ’Don´t feed the Animals’, första gången visad på Lydmar, konfronteras vi med porträtten av barn i sekelskiftets Europa, just under eller strax efter Första världskriget. Maskerade, lämnar de skarpa och tydliga avtryck, inte bara mot underlaget. Lina L Baker Don´t feed the animals no 2 Galleri Duerr Lydmar Affordable Art Fair Stockholm 2015

Lina L Baker questions identity – seen not only through the eyes of the child. In the series of Don´t feed the Animals, Lina’s work is influenced by a cartoon drawing of animals – turtles, monkeys and elephants – all vying for the attention of the headmaster judging their individual merits based on who can climb the tree fastest. Another crucial influence is turn of the century photographic portraits of children in various tones of black and white – postcards sent from Brussels, France and Germany. These miniature documentations of posing children in a strictly controlled environment form the basis of Lina’s work with pencil, coal, ink and aquarelle.

“Children are wide open for exposure – in school, among their peer groups and within the family. Children need to be children, feeling secure in their parents’ love. Today we constantly live with a bad conscience because we feel we do not do enough, when all they really need from us is to spend time with them and to give them confidence to face the world on their own.

Much is left to the public to interpret my images, but only by allowing yourself the time to engage, do you really begin to get to know and understand these creatures” / Lina L. Baker
