Goût de Excentrique

Exceptional Abstraction.

New American Paintings/Blog

Though he just moved to New York from Berlin, Michael Bauer‘s paintings have a thrifty quality that’s native to the Lower East Side. Bauer is not exactly sparing with material, but he conveys a raggedy feeling through dull palette, erasure on canvas, and focused use of a tiny brush. The effect is a highly-detailed fog. Only rubbery silhouettes of heads and limbs identify these as tangles of elastic figures. – Whitney Kimball, NYC Contributor
