Michael Bauer’s paintings appear as both intuitively spontaneous and carefully contrived. Set as neutral grounds, Bauer’s canvases are poetically quite zones where haphazard forms emerge with playful sophistication, balancing between organic aberration and whimsical design. In Untitled, Bauer uses attenuate mark making as a departure point for invention: shapes suggest themselves through impulsive drips and washes, becoming further refined with illustrative adornment. Dainty lines and swatches of bright colour take both geometric and bodily form, creating a biological architecture suggesting species that are exquisitely exotic.
