About

Steve Baris is interested in the interconnections of the built environment and spatial experience. His artwork is a response to a largely overlooked type of landscape that is emerging along our metropolitan fringes. These pockets of former fields, farms and forests are rapidly transforming into constellations of massive horizontal buildings known as "distribution" or "fulfillment" centers. This is a thoroughly new kind of liminal space, re-tooled solely to facilitate the rapid, frictionless flow of commodities to and from practically anywhere-high performing, expertly engineered, leveled, paved and interconnected by ever-expanding networks of highways and communication systems. He has always been sensitive to the spatial surround and is consistently struck by the spatial disorientation he feels driving through these areas. Here, there is so much space and so few points of access: so much mobility yet so constricted and channeled. It was here that he began to observe these remarkable buildings and their thorough transformation of the surrounding countryside. The imposing structures that define the distribution centers present a perfect geometric vocabulary for visualizing the mostly invisible economic forces that are transforming these regions. As with so much art from the most ancient to the contemporary, his pieces attempt to realize a provisional join between the visible and the invisible, the concrete and the conceptual. Space, his leading protagonist, is, technically speaking, invisible as are the abstract economic forces determining our access and experience of contemporary space and place. He hopes that his work gives form to these unprecedented spatial experiences. Steven Baris was born in Aberdeen Washington and grew up on various American Indian reservations in Northern California, Montana, and Washington State. He received a B.A. from The Evergreen State College in Olympia Washington and a MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. He lives and teaches art in the Philadelphia area. He has exhibited widely throughout North America and Europe; his work is represented in Denver by Space Gallery, and in Philadelphia by the Pentimenti gallery.
