Incline Gallery is excited to announce Why be a king when you could be a god?
a solo exhibition by San Francisco artist John Baunach…. Like many SF Muni
patrons, Baunach rides with headphones, listening, but always watching–the
curious, the uncomfortable, the scary, the routine. Inspired constantly by
the dualities of ideas that the collection of figures on the bus provokes,
Baunach uses his time to collect, think, envision. The bus, windows, and
people in it became a launching point for the work in this collection as
Baunach began to think about the ambitions, talents, aspirations (and faith)
held inside his fellow riders. He began to deconstruct and draw a critical
focus to what it means to be reigning or worshiping, outstanding, or just
plain ordinary. Sharpening his perception and perspective on where the lines
between ordinary and extraordinary converge and play with one another, the
colors and forms found in his work began to follow suit.
