This event has ended.

An enchantress contemplates an oil refinery . . . an Illyrian huntress appears in the New World . . . a modern Vestal receives a visitation from a brooding deity—and a dress made of dish rags appears in the gallery next to the paintings.In this exhibition, Monica Bauer’s large-scale paintings attempt to recoup the female figure, to redeem its power from debased commercial exploitation, using images of women for purposes of commentary on gender, class and nation. The title Prinzessin (princess) was chosen in German form to distance its common U.S. reference to middle class girls, and to invoke subtler, nuanced female roles.

Prinzessin is Monica Bauer’s second solo exhibition at Amos Eno Gallery. Her work has been exhibited in Hamburg, Bremen, Toronto, Sydney and Beijing; and has been published in New American Painting, Punkt, and Die Welt. Bauer has lived in New York since 2004, where she currently teaches at Pratt Institute. This exhibition supported in part by a grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, and a 2010 residency at MT Artists Refuge.
