  • Description

    Every work in the edition holds the same compositional structure and is grounded in Chellis' signature deep red color. Each piece was painted in a unique way to showcase the color’s range, accentuating the curves and movements in the composition’s structure. 23 karat Florentine gold leaf was applied throughout each work as a final touch, allowing the works to catch and hold light, adding a dynamic life to their appearance as the light changes throughout the day.

    Prod. 2022, plaster cast, 23k Florentine gold leaf and acrylic paint, 20x24x4”, edition 2 of 10.

    Meet the Artist

    Chellis Baird

    American artist Chellis Baird blurs the intersection of painting, sculpture and textiles. Baird explores the elements of painting by reconstructing handwoven canvases from a unique perspective. Her bespoke process begins with woven structures as her base. Each canvas starts with neutral toned materials that are then painted, dyed and sculpted into dimensional brushstrokes. She creates tangled compositions through a series of twists, knots, and upcycled textiles. Her background in fashion allows her to dress the canvas with imagination.

    Baird received her BFA in textiles from Rhode Island School of Design and studied studio art at the Art Students League in New York City. Born in Spartanburg, SC, Baird now lives and works in New York City. Chellis is a 2022 National Arts Club (NAC) Fellow.
