Large Optical Disc Sculpture by Mary Bauermeister
Bauermeister´s work is typified by obsessive assembly of its chosen materials. This work is glass based, with a variety of scaled lenses, both convex and concave, refracting and reflecting the collected light. The transparency is accented by the addition of several painted wood half spheres, each heavily inscribed with Bauermeister´s metaphysical insights.
Mary Bauermeister´s work is represented in the permanent collections of The Whitney, The Gugenheim, MOMA, The Brooklyn Museum, The Corchoran Gallery, as well as numerous important private collections.
