Born in Braunschweig, Germany

Studied in the Dept. of Visual Communication at the Fachhochschule Trier, and fine arts at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin.

My early work was figurative – life-size wooden wall figures

Since 2001 – geometrical (Konkrete Kunst - Concrete Art - an art direction that was mainly a European movement – Mondrian, Max Bill etc…) My works belong into the categories: Minimalism and Color Field.  The central theme is: Color and Shapes and the infinite possibilities.

In my works, I use numbers as mere forms concentrating on the interaction of colors and shapes by utilizing multiple media like works on canvas – photography – video.

My recent work involves mostly experimental photography – shapes and colors emerging from light sources and videos also generated by light, color and movement accompanied by sound. The sounds are computer-produced compositions created by me corresponding to the movements in the videos. They are presented as nonstop multiscreen video installations or audiovisual room installations in which the viewer is not disturbed by any other influences like content or meaning. To me, art exclusively concerns art and therefore can reflect solely itself and simply disregard all the meanings and contents that are superimposed on it.

In recent years I have exhibited my works in various art institutes which include the Museum im Kulturspeicher, Würzburg (along with Morellet, Albers, Bill, Klee, Mondrian, Riley, Vasarely), Museum of Modern Art, Hünfeld, (also with artists who are working in this field of art) and galleries in Munich, Berlin, Vienna, Spain.


Below is a translation of an extract from a German article on my work written by Dr. Hanne Weskott, Art Historian.

Eva Bauer paints numbers, which she uses as mere forms. She therefore does with numbers what Concrete Art has done with color and geometrical shapes: she negates any kind of meaning. The numbers can appear as positive or negative symbols, be repeated twice in a painting and form a new shape simply by changing their orientations and then unite with one another into a coherent whole. The astonishing thing about this playing with numbers is the incredible diversity that emerges, and also how convincingly this liberation of numbers from their meaning succeeds. One no longer perceives them as symbols for a certain quantity, but rather as pure structure in the initially white surface ………..
