Burn and Fade

Burn and Fade is an installation of altered tumbleweeds displayed within Sahara West Library’s circular “Grotto” space. Artist and educator Chris Bauder references a ceremonial funeral pyre with this sculptural installation combining modified found objects, plaster casting, light, and a unique manipulation of latex paint.

He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Reno, and a Master of Fine Arts, with an emphasis in sculpture, from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
