IAIN BAXTER "BAGGED DAY-GLO ORANGES" 1961
Iain Baxter& (b. 1936) is a forerunner of Canadian conceptual art.
He is renowned internationally for his creations that are infused with humor and a playful subversiveness.
He is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy, an Officer of the Order of Canada and a past winner of the Governor General's Award in Visual Arts.
In 2005 he legally changed his name to Iain Baxter& (pronounced "Baxterand")- adding the ampersand emphasized both his ongoing fascination with the symbol as well as his dedication and acknowledgement to the collaborative element in his practice.
Baxter's best work are creations encased or created from molded plastic; cheeky stylized landscapes, stuffed animals in preserve jars...and this amazing "bagged" oranges.
Baxter's work from this era rarely come to market and we are pleased to be offering this example in exceptional condition.
