IAIN BAXTER&, an artist who has been based in Windsor since 1988, is Member of the Order of Canada (2003) and recipient of a Governor General's Award for Lifetime Achievement in Visual & Media Arts (2004). Recognized for his contributions to conceptual art in Canada, his practice continues to find wonder and amazement in the ordinary. In the exhibition, the notion of wonder and the ordinary are represented through the mundanity of food. In comparison to 17th Century Baroque still-life painting in which food was an economic and class signifier to 20th Century critiques on the commodification of food in American Pop Art, this body of work deconstructs the traditions of still-life to reflect new contemporary material engagements with food in art.
