Daily Travels Through Time and Space
Reception Saturday, January 5, 2019 from 6-9pm
Evening Artist Talk on Thursday, January 31, 2019 from 6-7pm
Fort Works Art is pleased to announce “Daily Travels Through Time and Space”, local artist Greg Bahr’s first solo exhibition in Fort Worth. This exhibition will run from January 3, 2019 - February 9, 2019 with an opening reception on January 5th. “Daily Travels” will feature screen printed and sculptural works on paper. Each piece is a meticulously created visualization of the artist’s everyday routine. Every task in life creates a path, and Bahr’s work explores the patterns left by seemingly mundane journeys and aims to create something beautiful and meaningful out of them. You will see intricate lines that trace the rounds he makes while taking his kids to school every morning, heading to work, and back again. These many repetitive movements, often overlooked in the scope of one’s life, are what Bahr layers to create imperfect and intwining patterns in an effort to elevate their banal nature.
Greg Bahr is an artist living and working in Fort Worth, Texas. He received his BFA from Texas Christian University with an emphasis in painting. Whether working with painting, screen printing, or photography, his work incorporates formal elements such as pattern, color, and repetition. He draws inspiration from everyday, seemingly mundane tasks. He is also heavily inspired by his work at The Amon Carter Museum, where he has worked as a preparator for over 15 years.
