Markus Baenziger: Wayside
10/26/2014
12:00 PM
5:00 PM
This event recurs daily until 9/10/2014.
Markus Baenziger's sculptures integrate his love of nature with his immersion in a gritty, imperfect, and industrialized world. His exhibition of new works takes its title from a six foot-wide wall relief that evokes leafy tendrils spreading like wings on either side of a distressed piece of cardboard. Approaching the work from a distance, one realizes that these naturalistically rendered forms are actually made of bronze. Such works call attention to the continuum between decay and new growth, neglect and care, mechanization and craftsmanship. Baenziger’s mastery of design and attention to detailproduce works that appear both familiar and emblematic of larger forces.
