bau 1: Everyone is different, Nobody is special

Opening Reception January 8th, 2005, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
161 Main Street Beacon, NY 12508

The show runs through February 6th, 2005

bau 1 will present a collage-like display of works by the six founding members. The assemblage will be an arrangement of the artists' works with a variety of visual dialogues and conversations. This unconventional installation speaks to a core concept of bau; a space that reflects the individuality of each artist's approach, framed within the structure of a collective vision.

Peter Iannarelli's work often draws on the everyday using recognizable familiar objects that have been intricately altered into unfamiliar and disquieting sculptures. The works use a variety of materials (pencils, paper, crayons, hammers, plastic bags) and a range of media (sculpture, installation, video). This manipulation of objects relates to the transformations taking place everyday within the environment and communities through the influence of megastores and corporations.

Harald Plochberger seeks to visually explore the structures of language and mathematics in different media. Fragmentation and composition are the driving elements of a process that is stylistically based on geometric abstraction.

Kathy Feighery's paintings incorporate representative and abstract images. Vigorously worked surfaces are built up with paint, then scraped and sanded away to create an elusive visual movement with a very real physicality.

Gary Jacketti is an artist who works in many genres and mediums. A great proportion of his work is figurative, but he also explores organic, geometric and abstract forms in sculpture, painting, drawing and printmaking. No pigeonhole exists in which to hide.

Angelika Rinnhofer's Renaissance-like photographic images deal with the question of representation. With her photographs she explores art from the beginning of modernity in the 15th century to contemporary photography.

Chris Albert produces gestural, abstract paintings. Albert strives to create a visual representation of psychological states, giving them physical form with color and shape.
