About

Jenna Bauer’s work centers on themes of landscape, light, organic forms, and gestures. Her approach on these themes range from minimalist prints of translucent, overlapping colors to frenetic, textural paintings. Bauer explains, “The relationship between realism and abstraction can be a thread stretched very thin.”

In her recent works, Bauer approaches “the Loneliest highway in America paired with the minimalist work pioneered by color theorists of the mid-twentieth century.” With her use of color, light, straight lines, and right angles, she creates what she describes as a “double pixelation of rolling thunder clouds, thriving poppies, cool soil, rolling hills, brilliant blue skies, and luminous rays of light.”
