Jack Shainman GalleryMarking a new direction in Bavington’s oeuvre, Quadrophenia moves the more classical and strictly vertical and horizontal lines into an intense swirl of brilliant blues, magentas, greens and yellows. Bavington creates a visceral and emotional reverberation using The Who’s operatic album as a departure point and what results is an almost hypnotic optical experience that references the four-point structure of quadraphonic audio.
