Wolfgang Bauer's Work: The concept for the latest series of Wolfgang Bauer's paintings was initially inspired by the inconoclastic Frank Wedekind play 'Sping Awakening." This series evolved from interdisciplinary studies of German literature, philosophy and anthropology, and explores facets of childhoof development within sex negative, patriarchal, family structure in Western society. To promote a discourse between the viewer and the paintings, the portrayed characters make direct eye contact. This engages the viewer as a reactor to the narrative; with the viewer's own social, cultural, political and religious affiliations as pertinent variables. Ultimately, the portrayed characters aim to fuction as catalysts of socialization, prompted by patriarchal family structures within western society.
