About the artist
Even if the steel of Baurs kinetics often seems raw and old: he only uses new steel because it has the catalytic qualities that he cant find in old steel. After finishing a work of art he intentionally makes it look aged. Sometimes it takes several months until the complicated combination of material, form, movement and association they provoke form an harmonious work of art. Watching his sculptures Baur would like you to experience peace and harmony deep inside you.
