Bhakti Baxter (born in Miami FL, 1979) lives and works in Topanga, CA. At 38, having never lived anywhere but his hometown, Bhakti outfitted an old Sprinter and made his way to the west coast, immersing himself in the deep solitudes of Southern Utah and other singular landscapes along the way. Exploring the relationship between science and spirituality, his work hinges heavily on geometry, the systemic manifestations of geometric principles in nature and the interpretive freedom of abstraction. Working in a variety of media within sculpture, painting and drawing, Baxter’s practice is an ongoing investigation into existential queries through the creative process. His work has been exhibited at Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami, FL; Perez Art Museum Miami, FL; Bravin Lee Programs, New York, NY; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris, France; Manifesta 11, Zurich, Switzerland; among others.
