(b 1980Germany. )
Bauer is an abstract painter, illustrator, and printmaker. The pervasive personal and cultural impact of digital culture, combined with concerns about the eroding state of the environment, are themes in his work.
“A painting has to capture my imagination before I can call it done. Once I’ve connected the visual design to a particular memory or perception, my creative struggle can settle into a state of completion. Simultaneously, some elements must allow the strangeness of living in the twenty-first century to transmit through the layers of paint. I enjoy the challenge of achieving this with an increasingly outmoded medium.”
