Known for working with text and language as symbols in various forms of art, Kristin Bauer's art in Return to Earth takes a deeper subconscious approach to language and turns inward.
Drawing from text generated from conceptual poetics of her personal dream archives and archetypal studies, the works emphasize embodied experience in their construction with water, air, bodily movement and final form.
Large scale site specific installation, painting and plexiglass assemblage works simultaneously capture the elements of wind and water, transmuting unconsciousness symbolism into dada-esque messaging that moves amongst surfaces of canvas, cast acrylic, nylon, parachutes and draping flag forms.
Bright and enigmatic, and simultaneously direct and ephemeral, this exhibition marks the first solo exhibition of the artist, in Arizona, in a decade and coincides with the international release of her new publication "This is Like That: Kristin Bauer" published by Hirmer Verlag, in Munich, Spring 2023. Artist editions available at the gallery.
