If, Then, Because, Since and So comprises of sixteen large format colour photographs from the artist’s latest series of the same title, produced in 2017. This is Bare’s first exhibition since completing his MFA at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) this year and coincides with the release of an artist monograph, published under the same name, by Hassla Books in New York.

The works in If, Then, Because, Since and So display Bare’s thorough commitment to the photographic medium, drawing inspiration from street photography informed by a conceptual understanding of pictures and their potential. Each exposure is immersed in the cameras mediation between outdoor oddities and studio practice. In between the shuttering of the lens, the shifting light of the day transforms found and discarded materials, focusing on the particulars carried within the textured surfaces as pointing back to the image surface.

The title is a reference to syntax and the formulaic repetition of language, mulled from the pages of an elementary school textbook. The act of repetition — be it a reference to a formal series or in the images conceptual arrangement  are both part of the artist’s photographic approach.
