au Musée juste pour rire à Montréal
Warren Baird grew up in a rural area in Saskatchewan, and then moved to southern Ontario for formal training is in Mathematics and Computer Science - receiving a B.Math in Computer Science and Combinatorics and Optimization from the University of Waterloo. He's been living in Montreal for the last 7 years and has been informally studying and practicing photography and digital manipulation of images since moving to Montreal.
Warren's images are created by taking 3 or more original photographs with interesting textures and colours, and combining them digitally in a manner similar to multiple exposures. Other images are then incorporated into the frame similar in a technique similar to collage. He performs very minimal manipulations to the raw images, preferring to let their inherent colours and textures combine. He has previously displayed work in the Excentrik art show in Montreal.
Warren's goal is to encourage people to take a new and closer look at the world around them by showing everyday things in a new light. Combining images of everyday items like dandelions and other flowers, moss and cloudy skies, with more esoteric images like thunderstorms and waterfalls he brings out fantastic, sometimes surreal, landscapes with rich colours and textures. He then populates these landscapes with images of people and other items, blended into the landscapes to appear as natural denizens of these manufactured worlds.
