DESCRIPTION

Constructed Landscapes: Mark Baugh-Sasaki
Video Sculpture Photography

on view September 3-October 16, 2010
reception for the artist: Saturday, September 11, 6-9

In this solo exhibition, Mark Baugh-Sasaki presents sculptural works integrating video and photography that combine the organic with the industrial, the technological with the artistic. From a minimalist Tree made out of photographs on stacked glass to scientifically aligned studies like Phototropic Response, where a vine of metal and wood seems to achieve life through the light of a glowing monitor, the works in this exhibition will transform Krowswork into an industrial forest, whose elements help the viewer navigate and find peace with the juxtaposition of the natural and the man-made that is the reality of our environment today. Part Nam June Paik, part Andy Goldsworthy, Baugh-Sasaki demonstrates a nuanced and integrated relationship to the constructed landscapes of our time.
