Description

This is a print of a portrait of Fatima Mohamed-Ali who has been missing since 2016. Charming Baker worked from a photo that was taken on Christmas Day 2015.

'It was a family gathering and Fatima was so happy to have the grandchildren with her. Fatima devoted her life to her family, especially her grandchildren and especially her one and only son Aliakbar. Fatima always had a smile and this photo is a true reminder of what Fatima as a mother and grandmother was like.' - Mohamed Mohamed-Ali, Fatima's husband

About Charming Baker

Charming Baker (England, b. 1964) explores the linked dichotomy between life and death, love and terror, and joy, or rather, the intrinsically linked themes surrounding human condition and experience. He attended Central St Martin’s in 1985, where he later returned as a lecturer. He is represented by The Jealous Gallery in London and has had solo shows at The Truman Brewery, London (2007); The Redchurch Street Gallery, London (2009); New York Studio Gallery, New York (2010) and at Mercer Street Studios in 2011. In 2012, his sculpture Triumph in the face of absurdity was displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum, (the piece, a collaboration for the 2012 Olympics between the artist and Sir Paul Smith). Charming Baker currently lives and works in London.
