Local artist Ian August’s fascination with the rise (and fall) of the Bauhaus School fuels his creative process. To realize the outcome, oil-on-canvas paintings, August painstakingly constructs tableaus or scale models of modernist buildings, facades and interiors using wood, paper, everyday items and scraps. These architectural maquettes are then documented through photography or video which, in turn, become source material for paintings. At RE: BUILD THEM see each painting’s maquettes and videos that offer alternatives for consideration while pondering translation and construction of an image. At Gallery 1C03 from Nov 7 to Dec 7.
