JOSEPH PLASKETT PAINTINGS FOR SALE AFTER 2 YEAR MORATORIUM
Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to announce that a selection of Joseph Plaskett paintings have been released for sale, following the recent settlement of his estate. We look forward to discussing these works with collectors. Plaskett passed away September 21, 2014 in his home in Suffolk, England. He was 96.
Joseph Plaskett is considered to be one of Canada’s most talented and established painters. In the spring of 2001, he was awarded The Order of Canada for excellence in the field of visual art. Since the 1940’s, he has had over 65 solo and group exhibitions, with work in major public, private and corporate collections, including the National Gallery of Canada. He has exhibited with the Bau-Xi Gallery, both in Vancouver and Toronto, since 1973.
Born in 1918 in New Westminster, B.C., Plaskett studied art in Banff, San Francisco, New York, London, and Paris, where he lived for many years. His chosen subjects are intimate expressions of everyday life – interiors, still life, and portraits of friends and models. There is a warm humanity to his work; a love of light, form, and colour that is evident in every painting he produces. The ensuing results are masterworks of visual delight.
