Baird’s work uses an interdisciplinary approach to relationships between myth, object, symbol and history.
Smooth surfaces and careful placement mask work both romantic and utopian. The idea is to encourage, viewers to not only reinterpret surroundings in the gallery but their broader context in contemporary society and civilization vis a vis industrialization.
Baird received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his MFA from the University of Chicago at Illinois. His work has appeared in solo and group shows in the USA and Europe.
