Kostelanetz in "Imaged Words & Worded Images" rightfully wonders what to call a style of visual poetry that combines word and image as creatively (or purposely errantly) as Baker does: "a more general yet discriminating term", as he says, for a poem that is in Baker's case the product of neutral page, sculpted yard space and palette, all at the same time. Baker's 'stone girl'is the "word-image" (Kostelanetz's own term)for each of Baker's works listed here.The poem, more artifact than traditional verse, is largely the interplay of the materials that work inside these varied media: minimal poetry, drawing, sculpture & Eastern iconography. And I believe Baker's word-images go beyond the more traditional models found in, say, Dylan Thomas, Guillaume Apollinaire, Kurt Schwitters and Kostelanetz himself in their distinctively Eastern inspiration.My thanks to "otoliths" for displaying Baker's wonderful work here!
