ARTIST Q&A: THE DOMESTIC LANDSCAPE OF CASEY MCGLYNN

'DOMESTIC ANIMALS' ON DISPLAY AT BAU-XI GALLERY VANCOUVER, JAN 21 - FEB 2, 2017

Human Animal Earth, 48 x 54 in. mixed media on canvas, 2016

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Casey McGlynn to discuss his latest exhibition, 'Domestic Animals'

What do you want to achieve with autobiographical drawings?

With the autobiographical drawings, I'm continuing my 20 year pursuit of documenting the narrative of my inner life through imagery. Currently, family life has been my  foremost preoccupation and the imagery of my new found domesticity - a father of 3 young children - flows naturally. 

The structured family life and its weight aren't used often as the subject matter in paintings. With 'Domestic Animals', what are you hoping to say about domestic life?

Family life is simple: supper time; craft time; nap time. I, my wife, and our children participate in all these routine activities together. There is a great deal of beauty and adventure within these small moments.

What is the significance of the animals?

Animals were the beginning of my career as a working artist. I have always been an artist  - an obsessed drawer as child, graduating from painting T-shirts to cars. In 1995, I created my first animal based painting which helped to launch my career and introduce me to the world of fine art. 

How do you decide your color palettes?

Though I only realized the relationship halfway through completing 'Domestic Animals', the colours I used are drawn from the work of a Dutch outsider artist that I own. It is a painting of cheese that hangs in my peripheral vision in my studio. I wasn't consciously referencing the colours in this painting, but clearly, my fondness for it invaded my pratice. 

The sectioning within a painting -- does it carry any meaning, and if so, how do you determine that?

It is a reference to comic book panels, which i love.

Has any of your family members commented on this series of work?

My wife actually said she wanted to keep the paintings in the series that are very personal. But, I felt it was important to exhibit them ... the best joy is that I get to be with the subjects in my paintings everyday.

Now Showing Erin Armstrong

Juxtaposing the everyday with surrealistic imaginings, Erin Armstrong reveals those emotions often lost or buried in human experience. Graphic, geometric elements contrast silky paint applications and organic shapes. Figurative renderings oscillate playfully between the genres of portraiture and anonymous abstraction, welcoming viewers into a world full of many possible interpretations.

Armstrong's work is sold internationally and has been exhibited in Canada, the US, Australia, Sweden and the UK. She was recently selected by Saatchi Art as their "One To Watch" and by Saatchi Art's chief curator, Rebecca Wilson, as one of "20 Emerging Artist in the World to Follow." Designlines Magazine named her one of Toronto's "Six New Art Stars" and blogTO counted her in their "Top 10 Most Talked About Painters In Toronto." She is represented in the UK, NYC and Australiasia. Erin has upcoming exhibits in Toronto, Australia, Stockholm, Edinburgh, London, Oslo, Miami and NYC.

Pat O'Hara: LINEARITY

 

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

January 7 - 21
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
Opening Reception January 7
2:00 - 4:00 pm

From her more representative works of snowy scenes, to soft patterns of concentric lines, and pastel hues, Pat O’Hara’s recent paintings explore the motif of strings, but with a higher velocity: strokes are soft and bright, simultaneously explosive and strong. There is visible confidence in the artist's choice of bold colours, while her inclusion of playful accents on white and black strands stand out among the varying chroma, giving these paintings a sense of grounding. Experiments with resin add luminosity and dimension to her work.

Enriched by the shades of forest, sea, and nature, Linearity demonstrates a sense of certainty and assertion in O'Hara's artistry.

Tom Burrows at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre

 Installation view of Tom Burrows' 2016 solo show at Bau-Xi Toronto

 

Bau-Xi Gallery is proud to share that Tom Burrows’ work #4 Hematoma: Violet/Red will be displayed in an upcoming exhibition at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario.

This piece, which is part of their public collection, will be shown in The hold: studies in the contemporary collection, opening this winter. The form and allusion of #4 Hematoma: Violet/Red inspired the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Agnes to include the piece in this exhibition, which explores the idea of the container and embrace.

Tom Burrows’ panel will be hanging alongside pieces by Pablo Picasso, Gustav Klimt, Napoleon Brousseau, Lyne Lapointe and Martha Fleming, Anne Ramsden, Luis Jacob, Ted Rettig, Gabrielle Sims and Lisa Visser.

The exhibition will be on view from 7 January to 9 April 2017 at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.

ALEX CAMERON: RAINBOW STATION

Enjoy the rich detail of Cameron's thick impasto techniques this January at Bau-Xi Toronto

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

January 7 - 21
340 Dundas St. West, Toronto
Opening Reception January 7
2:00 - 4:00 pm

"Rainbow Station" is an exhibition of new work by one of Canada’s favourite contemporary landscape painters, whose explorative relationship with colour and texture has defined his work for over 40 years. Immersed in the arts from a young age, Alex Cameron was introduced to New York City’s Abstract Expressionist movement in the 1960s, and witnessed concurrent and equally powerful experiments in abstraction back home in Toronto, where he worked as a studio assistant for the late Jack Bush in the mid-1970s. Cameron’s celebration of pure pigment has since characterized his canvases, with his thick painterly application lends lively sculptural form to both his energetic landscapes and non-representational studies. Not only bold and bright, Cameron’s colours are unconventional, inverted, and built up in linear “ropes” of paint—often applied straight from the tube—that make his surfaces hum with life. His subjects—the varied landscapes of Canada observed during his regular coast to coast travels—are not merely captured or recorded in paint, but rather honoured for their complexity; they are organic, total, and magical environments that live and grow.

Alex Cameron’s paintings have been collected extensively in Canada and abroad. Notable collections include the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Bank of Canada, and The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Art Collection.

Ted Fullerton awarded prominent sculpture commission

Congratulations to Bau-Xi artist Ted Fullerton who has recently been awarded a sculpture commission for the Billings Art and Heritage Trail, Manitoulin Island, to be installed in the Summer of 2017.

Digital rendering of the artist’s intention for commissioned piece Ascend/Transcend

 

Ascend/Transcend: Billings Art and Heritage Trail, Manitoulin Island.

The sculpture Ascend/Transcend will consist of three figures stepping up into “imagined space”. Each pole will have a different elevation reinforcing the notion of ascension and transcendance, creating a sculpture that places imagined human endeavor and achievement between earth and sky. This inference will be reinforced with a yellow bird – yellow being symbollc of enlightenment – surmounted on the highest figure’s head.
