Amelia Bauer – Extra Terrestrial

March 29th, 2012 · No Comments

In 2011 I featured Amelia Bauer’s¬†minimalist¬†drawings and sculpture of tree branches and forests. This work is very different and not just because it’s in another medium. It turns out that the artist was born in Santa Fe so the¬†mountainous, desert landscape in this series was home at some point.

Environs By Amelia Bauer

February 24th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I saw photos of NYC artist Amelia Bauer’s 2008 show Environs on Seesaw, and decided I had to check her out. The photos below are all from that same show at Capricious in Brooklyn. It’s always kind of funny when you happen upon a new artist and then realize you’re looking at their work from years back.

In the installation shots I love her use of negative space. The space is so serene and calming – like she transported the best parts of nature inside. I’d very happily transport that wall into my living room if I could.

Bauer is taking part in the same group show at Capricious in Williamsburg which opens tomorrow.
