About The Publication

Reminiscent of the bizarre, anthropomorphic portraits of sixteenth-century painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Michael Bauer's work creates figurative composites from abstraction and design. Grotesque and distorted conglomerations of doodled elements, gray and muddy forms entangle as abject viscera; lumpy scar tissue, withering penises and slithery dead matter converge as psychological landscape and forlorn memento mori.
