Baxter (b. 1979, Miami) creates work that explores the intricate and symmetrical aspects of nature, translated through geometric terms. Investigating the territory amid science and spirituality, his practice aims to bridge a medial relationship between the seemingly ordinary and the interpretive freedom of abstraction. Working in a variety of media including collage, sculpture and drawing, Baxter’s goal is to disorient and disrupt accepted boundaries, as he questions common perceptions of the mundane. Selected exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris; Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome; Gallery Diet, Miami; and Miami Art Museum, Miami; among others. The artist currently lives and works in Miami.
