A Satyr in the Creamery
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 26th, 2-5 PM
Trevor Baird’s practice is influenced by comics, movies, and other narrative mediums translated into the language of craft. Blending the crass sentimentality of DIY cultural production with the idealized perfection of industrial craft, Baird’s practice questions the history and functionality of the decorative arts. The Montreal-based artist uses repetition through molds and screenprinting, while retaining human touch in a personally developed practice where intervention and error is introduced and cultivated between each step. The work undermines its transparent functionality, highlighting its uneasy status and linear material progression from malleable to non-repurposable.
More details to be announced in the near future.
