Logan Bauer was born in Grand Forks, North Dakota, though much of his formative years were spent overseas. As a result, he took his first painting class in London, England at the age of 13. He graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas with a BA in education and a minor in history and political science. During his last year at Trinity he took the majority of his coursework in the fine arts department where he devoted much of his time to painting. Settling in Arizona he continued his art education at Phoenix College and Arizona State University while pursuing other professional goals. Only recently have circumstances permitted him to transform what had been a pastime into a full-time commitment.
A figurative and landscape artist, Bauer’s impressionistic and contemporary abstract imagery is imbued with a vivid sense of color, light, and emotion informed by the vistas of his lifelong travels. His oil paintings are characterized by years of watercolor techniques that blend color in ethereal and unsuspecting ways and that add to the narratives he depicts on canvas.
Initially Bauer’s work was painted in the watercolor medium. However, by the fall of 2009 he ventured back into painting with oil on canvas, which was his first love. Bauer continues to study life drawing and painting in classroom and workshop settings and is a member of the Arizona Artists Guild (AAG), a juried member of the Arizona Art Alliance (AAA), , and has a professional membership with Contemporary Fine Arts International (CFAI).
Recent works have been shown at the November 1913 Arizona Art Alliance’s exhibition at their Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition, he can be seen in the July, August, and September 2014 CFAI’s Virtual Language publication, the 2014 publication “International Contemporary Masters VIII & VIX”, AAG’s Statewide Exhibition of Fine Art at the Glendale Gallery at Westgate Jan. 31st to March 1st 2014.
