The other major work from Surge and Shadow is a sculptural piece entitled Flying Curve, Differential Manifold. Picking up from similar past works (Kurotoplac Kurve), Flying Curve, Differential Manifold is on a new scale. Again, Jennifer Gross explains that, “ Flying Curve is in part inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s last painting, Tu m’” and was “Duchamp’s farewell to painting.” However Baker’s aim is not an end to painting, but rather she seems inspired and challenged by the notion. “Baker has followed through on Duchamp’s conceptual curve ball to painting, speeding up and dispersing its forms at ten times its original scale, enveloping the viewer in sublime kaleidoscope of color and form. Baker’s work reveals her belief that painting still has somewhere to take us and that Duchamp’s theoretical endgame, embodied in Tu m’, took her down a path to painting despite Duchamp’s protestations.”
