EDWARD BAHORIC

Mélange of Milieu
March 6 – March 26, 2015
Reception: Thursday, March 12, 2015 6-8 PM

Trained as a figure skater, Canadian artist Edward Bahoric relies on muscle memory and choreographic skill to portray movement in a static form. Bahoric’s figures often intertwine, caught in the midst of a transition, sinuous and driven by purpose. It is not the individual, however, that Bahoric hopes to idealize, but the sense of movement itself. This artistic realization of kinetic energy is what Bahoric terms a “dynamic still image.” It is an athlete’s monument to skill and grace, cultivated through persistence and complete devotion. 

Bahoric’s style is an amalgamation of expressionism and surrealism. It is figurative but alien, touching and bizarre. His subjects, contorted yet blissful, twisting and tumbling in a tribute to motion. It is no wonder, then, that Bahoric is driven to create, to push forward and innovate. Like a perpetual motion device, the artist must continue on, never slowing. Bahoric’s work is a celebration of movement. It is dynamism distilled, a frozen instant supplied by anonymous actors at the artist’s behest.
