Artists tackle mortality in ‘Skull’ exhibit at Sahara West Library in Las Vegas

Bauder’s own entry was Folie a’ Deux and featured a light box. He used a TV lamp, a concept from the 1950s in the early days of television when people thought the sets would cause blindness if there was not another light source. They are now collectors’ items. Folie a’ Deux loosely translates to “a madness shared by two.”

“It represents a psychosis, shared by two people merely by close proximity,” he said.

That psychosis included Barbie doll legs painted for a black stocking effect and the two skulls surrounded by imagery such as bow ties. It was created from his current series on night lights.
