Markus Baenziger's sculptures integrate his love of nature with his immersion in a gritty, imperfect, and industrialized world. His exhibition of new works takes its title from a six foot-wide wall relief that evokes leafy tendrils spreading like wings on either side of a distressed piece of cardboard. Approaching the work from a distance, one realizes that these naturalistically rendered forms are actually made of bronze. Such works call attention to the continuum between decay and new growth, neglect and care, mechanization and craftsmanship. Baenziger's mastery of design and attention to detail produce works that appear both familiar and emblematic of larger forces.

Born in Zurich, Switzerland, 1959, Markus Baenziger received an M.F.A. in sculpture from Yale University School of Art and a B.F.A. from Parsons School of Design. His work has been presented in one-person shows at Louise Jones Brown Gallery, Duke University and Edward Thorp Gallery, Bonakdar Jancou Gallery, Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, and Cohen Gallery in New York City. His work has also been featured in select group exhibitions at the Rose Art Museum; the Walker Art Center; the Yale University Art Gallery; the Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa, FL; the Hillwood Art Museum, Brookville, NY; the Florida Atlantic University Gallery; the Swiss Institute, NY and Zabriskie Gallery in New York City; and C/O Gallery, Oslo.

Baenziger is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and awards from the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, the State of Connecticut Commission on the Arts, and Yale University. His work has been reviewed in diverse publications including The New York Times, The New York Sun, Art Newspaper, The Village Voice, Artforum, Art in America, Arts & Antiques, and Sculpture Magazine. His work can be found in the collections of the Walker Art Center, the Agnes Gund Collection, and numerous private collections. A resident of New York City since 1984, he is also Associate Professor of Art at Haverford College. He is represented by Edward Thorp Gallery, New York
