FloraBau | Opening Reception

  • Fourth Element Gallery 210 North Broadway Santa Ana, CA, 92701 United States (map)

Fourth Element Gallery is pleased to present Jane Bauman’s FloraBau, opening August 4 and on view through August 24, 2018. The exhibition, a survey of work from Bauman’s series of the same name, features mixed media collage paintings that focus on the elements of desert droughts and drowning floods, highlighting their duality and raising to question the necessity of water as an “invaluable resource.” Through the manipulation of photographs—with mindful attention to juxtaposition and the altering presence of multiple layers of paint—Bauman’s work emphasizes the fact that nature is not a beast we can so easily tame. The exhibition coincides with the release of the 76-page full-color catalogue, FloraBau, which the artist will be signing at the opening reception.
