Featuring paintings and sculptural works that traverse liminal states of being, Duality aims to explore the ever-changing state of the human condition. Through abstraction, the viewer is immersed, unlocking their own mutable states of mind and coming to understand that nothing ever stays the same. All is fluid, moving. Capturing a likeness of something that already occupies space has never really interested Bailer. Instead, the development of a personal style and the refinement of an enjoyable cathartic process takes precedence. Process is the most important part of Bailer’s artistic expression, and is clearly apparent in his work. Painting publicly in Melbourne for nearly 20 years, Bailer holds an influential position within the graffiti community, and his style is instantly recognisable. Bailer’s letters are deeply grounded in the traditions of the localised, wild style of graffiti culture, while his studio practice and public art incorporate a broad range of artistic modes.
