Bhakti Baxter: Returning What Was Borrowed
In Bhakti Baxter’s work, familiar day-to-day objects take on new roles that no longer conform to the purposes of design but rather the inherent physical properties contained in the materials of these objects.
Baxter was born in Miami, in 1979, where he currently lives and works. He has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally. This exhibition feature sculptures Baxter made between 2011 and 2014 in the neighborhood of Little Haiti in Miami, where he has been based for the past four years.
