    Vanessa Baird, from the series Trailing Clouds of Glory Do We Come, 2001

    Vanessa Baird employs biting black humour to describe different situations in human life. She often adopts an elegant romantic story-book style but one in which the subject she has chosen abruptly shatters the viewer’s peace of mind. Animals and people in absurd and frequently sexual situations point to the collapse of propriety, and her work also includes powerful social criticism with clear feminist overtones.

    In this exhibition, a collaboration with the Galleri Wang in Oslo, Baird presents recent watercolours together with painted pottery.
