Scott Bauer

Scott is a fine art painter and sculptor specializing in abstract art. He came to art late in life. His education and experience was in chemistry, physics, and engineering. His art draws on that science and engineering background which results in a unique hard edge geometric style of art. His work represents a juxtaposition of emotion (color) and intellect (shape and composition). Through careful composition of color, shapes, and patterns, Scott's work stimulates both sides of the brain. There is always more there than what immediately meets the eye. His art is a mix of non-objective and symbolic imagery that provokes thoughtful contemplation. Different people see different things in his art. The vivid colors and deceptively simple shapes immediately grab one's attention and provide that initial "wow" factor. The analytical portion of the brain then goes to work trying to make sense of the shapes and patterns presented to it. Like a multi-color Rorschach test, no two people see or feel exactly the same thing.
