Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany Baxter’s exhibition of approximately 40 multidisciplinary landscape works (1965-1999) in painting, photography, printmaking, video and sculpture. Tupper’s foreword draws attention to the artist’s connections with Alberta and its landscape. The author also refers to the role of landscape in Baxter’s art as a “container for the social and the self.” The artist’s statement describes the various uses of landscape in his studies and work since the late 1950s. In her biographical essay, curator Townsend analyses Baxter’s artistic contribution over four decades, giving special attention to landscape and the impact of the N. E. Thing Company (founded with Ingrid Baxter in 1966) on the genre’s renewal. Bibliography 1p. 4 bibl. ref.
