Challenging the current state of the world through juxtaposition - Scott Baird

InterviewsErika Belavy

Perhaps influenced by his upbringing in rural Alberta, Scott has a deeply misanthropic nature and a harshly critical view of society. His work communicates his interest in how information of the world is mediated, biased, and disseminated through major news networks and the internet. As an appropriation artist, Scott creates with images taken from these sources, recontextualizes them through altered compositions and direct juxtaposition, and presents the results as graphic art in printed form. His social and political commentary has recently been exhibited across Canada and the United States, as well as abroad in Europe.
