Chris Baker is inspired by their surroundings in North Wales as their initial inspiration for most of their artwork which investigates light, shade and shadows created in landscape. Using a limited palette of paynes grey and white, they study the effect of tones and perspective to create a sense of haunting mystery and dark corners to provoke memories and varied associations in the viewer, trying to get that sense of the present tense, that sense of eternity being in every moment.
