Field Guide: Markus Baenziger, curated by John Muse
"Highlighted in [this] exhibition... is the fresh perspective of a Swiss-born artist from Brooklyn new to Haverford's faculty. The intensity of focus and feeling in his work is strong, and the images become key elements in the tale this show tells, often capturing a sad, resonant—and occasionally high-spirited—beauty." —Victoria Donohoe
Using plastic resins, found objects, and various casting and carving
techniques, artist Markus Baenziger invents floridly beautiful flora
that often merge with or emerge from technological debris. Field Guide,
Baenziger's first exhibition at Haverford College, maps his ecologies
of cultured waste and natural hybridity, inviting viewers to reconsider
the troubles and wonders of our contemporary landscape.
