There’s magical madness in her method: acclaimed contemporary artist Baker listens to sound waves in order to achieve a meditative state and then paint auras and energy, adding diamond dust, neon and kinetic elements to make bursts of celestial optimism. The resulting sense-enhancing pieces and installations explore the fragility of life and the expansiveness of the universe, and have been shown at the V&A, Tate Britain and Tate Modern.
