Teresa Baker (Mandan/Hidatsa, b.1985) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Through a mixed media practice combining artificial and natural materials together, Baker creates abstracted landscapes that explore vast space, and how we move, see and explore within them. The materials, texture, shapes, and color relationships are guided by Baker's Mandan/Hidatsa culture to explore how identity can relate to innate objects. Baker has had recent solo exhibitions at de boer, Los Angeles, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ; Halsey McKay, East Hampton, NY; Pied-à-terre, San Francisco; and Interface Gallery, Oakland. Group exhibitions include, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA, Nerman Museum, Overland Park, KS, Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, TX, and Marin MOCA, Marin, CA. Baker is a 2022 Joan Mitchell Fellow, and was an artist-in-residence at Fogo Island Arts in Newfoundland in 2022. Baker was the 2020 Native American fellow at the Ucross Foundation in Ucross, WY. She was a Tournesol Award artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, CA as well as an Headlands Affiliate artist in residence. Baker received her B.A. from Fordham University, and MFA from California College of the Arts.
