Sharon Baker


Sharon is a printmaker based in Birmingham, UK. 

Her art practice engages with printmaking processes: she creates compositions using photographs, drawings and accidental marks exploring imagery found in popular culture and the urban environment. The images she uses have a personal resonance and inspire a creative response. Images evolve into motifs and abstractions of the originals or are transcribed unaltered.

Manhole Covers

Her current prints are based on the manhole covers, hydrants and boundary boxes we pass by every day. She is interested in the geometric designs, numerals and text that make up their structure. She sees their presence as historical markers of urbanisation and as access points to the networks and infrastructure that underpin our lives: signifiers of the values, industry and organisation that make our cities work.
