In the Solo Gallery:

INTERSTICE
KYLE BAUER

WHEN: MARCH 2 - APRIL 13, 2013
WHERE: Baltimore Clayworks, 5707 Smith Ave., Baltimore

In*ter*stice, noun. a space that intervenes between things; especially one between closely spaced things.

Kyle Bauer creates plaster molds from both his own constructed forms and found objects from the vicinity surrounding his home and studio. These components are then slip-cast and combined into mixed media, large-scale sculptures and installations that convey balance, tension, and control. His method of building these structures through arranging, stacking, and piling is closely related Kyle's background in restoration and preservation, particularly of houses and furniture. The mixed media sculptures in Interstice combine a graphic reference to maritime navigation, along with the metaphor of a journey. Kyle's installation is intended to aid the participant in navigating the gallery space, and it encourages viewers to investigate and interact with the sculptures.
