About Baciar

MAN is sculpted into the dimension of space by art, and even the most subtle moment of man's existence can be brought to importance by the nude. The nudes which are presented in the photography of the artist Baciar carry the attributes of man's unending history: his characteristics of the soul; his passions of the body, and the torments of aspects which aren't well defined, nor known to him, but felt. The human beings portrayed on the photographs are more like bronze statues or stone sculptures than actual people, giving the photography a further abstraction and meaning to the ideas represented by the artist. Baciar's works are comparable to artists such as Man Ray, Michealangelo, or Rodin. The works are strong and expressive, classical in their beauty. Yet, they are subtle for they carry the lightness and ease of great skill.

The artist's work is classical in form and reaches to capture both the modern aesthetic while at the same time reflecting upon an almost mythical human past. The moment we come into contact with the work, it has drawn us into it's realm. We give ourselves over in order to reflect and to live through the work as if it were a part of our own humaness.
In conclusion, it can be said that Baciar's works skulpt man into the dimension of space with ease, they are poignant and beautiful.

Baciar graduated from the renowned Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (1991), and has had exhibits on both sides of the Atlantic. Many of his works are in private collections in both the United States and Europe.
