Check out this fantastic little film ‘As a Gorilla’ featuring Charming Baker and his brilliant 13 year old son, Harvey Baker.
In between shots of the two of them driving through LA in matching sunglasses with low flying aeroplanes above, Baker’s son discusses the themes of his father’s work with impressive discernment and shrewdness. Looking at the paintings and sculpture from his unique, youthful perspective, the film offers an exploration into Baker’s work that has never been seen before.
We particularly love it when Charming asks Harvey if he’s brushed his teeth! How we wish Charming Baker was our Dad and we could curate his next LA show.
