IMAGES: Michael Bauer

In the fantastic group exhibition at Foxy Productions, “Bauer, Croxson, Lichty, Wood,” Michael Bauer (German, born 1973) presents diminutive paintings that suggest a new direction for abstraction. Dark and enigmatic, they evoke a self-effacing combination of surreal portraiture and Modernist abstraction, unleashing a variety of references both nightmarish and charming. […]
