I developed and implemented a framework from which to create from, for anyone to use if they encountered creative block.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lynda Baird has collaborated with many artists on large scale, site-specific sculpture commissions for twenty-five years in Canada and abroad. In partnership she won the Allied Arts Award from the Ontario Association of Architects in 1997 “for innovative collaboration with architects resulting in many inspiring integrations of art and architecture.”
Baird Sculptures’ work has many imaginative elements that move in the wind, are light responsive or make gently sounds. Some pieces also include electronics, electronic sound, textile elements, and contemporary light sources.
Baird Sculpture has completed over 150 corporate and private commissions in Canada and abroad, with an imaginative variety of concepts. These include fountains, sculptural landmarks for world’s fairs and civic parks, other civic locations, both interior and exterior, towers, murals, carillons and site specific pieces for business, donor recognition, industry and private collectors.
Lynda has studied in workshop situations with world famous artists including Karen Selk and had a fibre art career for ten years before becoming a metal sculptor.
Recently Lynda has been collaborating with a team from the town of Richmond Hill to design a footbridge, 100' long, that is a galaxy of stars, laser cut into aluminum, with LED lighting. Look for it on a tributary of the Don River near the old Dunlop observatory.
