"...Sadness, joy, hope and despair of humanity within a social context are all visible in his work."
Dwight Baird has been painting for over thirty-five years, evolving from watercolors to acrylics. Today he paints in a contemporary realism style, combining big-brush impressionist strokes and subtle squares juxtaposed with highly defined focal points. His subjects are in constant evolution as he discovers new places and techniques. Baird's most recent series of works - not just paintings but also a collection of historical documents - depicts the daily struggle in Cuba, a country anchored in the past yet on the verge of dramatic change.
The artist finds beauty where most people would never dream of looking - winding backstreets, narrow alleys, darkened doorways - bringing each painting alive with nuance and history. Based on four elements, light, colour, dynamic composition and unique subject matter, the sadness, joy, hope and despair of humanity within a social context are all visible in his work.
