Kate Baker  draws on her background in photography and studio glass to examine moments of connection between the physical, psychological and emotional strata of the human environment. Through forming layers and then breaking them down with the use of text, transparency and positive and negative space, the artist brings attention to seemingly undisrupted pure moments. Before graduating from the Glass Workshop at the Australian National University School of Art in Canberra in 1999, she studied photography, printmaking and sculpture, all of which inform her practice. Baker is currently a PhD candidate at the ANU School of Art and Design.

It contains the exhibition Work, Lovelife, Miscellaneous by Tom Buckland, musings on the many absurd complexities of modern life with sculptures and dioramas that mix suburban domesticity with sinister absurdist fantasy.
