Jim Baker

Jim Baker is a New Mexican multi-media artist working in the creation of three dimensional altered Bibles and Christian art. Jim’s art is noted for combining antique altered Bibles with Biblical symbols, metaphors, and artifacts to inspire devotion and worship of God, to provoke spiritual conversations, and uncover the often hidden meaning in Holy Scripture. It's not surprising that Jim's 40 years of experience as a Baptist minister informs his sacred art work. "My art conveys the belief that Holy Scripture cannot be fully interpreted and applied without metaphor, symbol, and story. My art reflects the deep connection between the Holy Scriptures of my Judeo-Christian faith tradition and the metaphors, stories, and symbols requisite to their understanding. The inspiration to reclaim and re-stich old Bibles (1700’s – 1800’s) of different languages that are no longer in use comes from the word religion, derived from the Latin word Re- ligio, meaning to re-bind…..a word used in Scripture to reflect God's desire to re- connect us to Him, to our true selves, and to others.” Jim’s sacred art is represented by Seraphym Sacred Art Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, Convento Gallery in Espanola, NM, The Benedictine Monastery Gallery and Gift Shop in Taos, NM and Jemez Fine Art Gallery in Jemez Springs as well as in churches, schools, religious institutions, homes, and businesses - wherever people want creative and inspirational art to express and experience faith. Jim’s art is also available through his online gallery,
