Mary Bauermeister Representation

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery to Represent Mary Bauermeister


PRESS RELEASE: (New York—April 28, 2018) Michael Rosenfeld Gallery proudly announces its exclusive representation of Mary Bauermeister. The gallery has enthusiastically promoted Bauermeister’s work for over thirty years, including her in group exhibitions; most recently, she was included in The Time Is Nw. Bauermeister will be featured, along with six others, in the gallery’s forthcoming booth (C22) at Frieze New York (May 2–6, 2018) with a selection of her iconic lens boxes and stone reliefs. Honored to represent and further her legacy, Michael Rosenfeld states: “Mary Bauermeister has long been among my favorite artists and as a matter of fact, I have lived with her art as part of my personal collection for over thirty years! A visionary whose art since the 1950s has defied categorization, Mary is a legend; her pioneering work deserves our focus and attention.”

A multidisciplinary artist known for her intricate and enigmatic assemblages, Mary Bauermeister (b.1934) was a seminal figure of the Fluxus movement – her studio was the meeting point for a number of defining artists of the movement.  Her work plays an integral role in the discussion of art, both European and American, that emerged from the 1960s. Her reliefs and sculptures, which have incorporated drawing, text, found objects, natural materials and fabric, reference a plethora of concepts: from natural phenomena and astronomy to mathematics and language, as well as her own “spiritual-metaphysical experiences.” Maturing amidst the currents of Minimalism and Pop Art, Bauermeister’s art has resisted labels due to the singular expression of her interests and concerns, among them the simultaneous transience and permanence of the natural world with experimentations in transparency and magnification, multiplication and variation, structure and order, chance and ephemerality, introversion and extroversion. Her three-dimensional receptacles of thoughts, ideas and notes contain visual, conceptual and philosophical paradoxes that challenge perceptions and that offer literal and metaphorical windows into which one can glimpse the inner workings of the artist’s mind.
