Work from his oeuvre.
“Steven Baldi’s work attempts to examine the multifaceted nature of visual language by taking on overburdened material forms of representation such as painting, 16mm film and photography, thus re-establishing meaning through process method and proximity. Baldi utilizes cascading sign systems inherent in the photographic medium to evaluate how the making and experience of objects relate to their exhibition and subsequent cataloging. Taking into consideration how the past, present and future documentation play a role in the making, recording and distributing of exhibitions, Baldi uses the historical, be it the immediate historical of his own exhibition history or working methods established by figures of Modernity, to reorient ones relationship to meaning and re-cognition.” – Andrew Kreps
