Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Dina hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she always had a love affair for art in its most abstract of forms. She attended the Barnes Foundation and received a full scholarship to the Art Students League, in New York City. During this time period, she participated in various exhibitions and continued working out of her own studio.

Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Presently, she has had over 33 one person shows and has spent her entire life being committed to her passion. Her work is her own expressive style of conceptual and abstract paintings. For Baker, her art is her way of exploring and discovering her own feelings in terms of colors, forms and movements. While her work is considered to be very introverted, it allows those watching her work to emotionally connect with her pieces. Baker has said that “painting is poetry without words, music without sound, and freedom without loss.”

For Baker, painting is “poetry without words, music without sound and freedom without loss.” Through that personal quote, her abstract paintings convey her true self: a woman who is steadfast, strong, and absolute – and an artistic force. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Baker’s career began in the early 1940s with conversations with Dr. Barnes of the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, having been awarded a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York City, and soon enough surrounded by the true greats of their time – Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willlem de Kooning, the list goes on. “It has been my life and I work every day,” said Baker, who enjoys painting in her West Palm Beach studio.

“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to show Dina’s extraordinary works in our gallery,” said Rena Blades, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “Her show illustrates experimentation and expressiveness in style, form and color, and illustrates her life experience.“
