JILL GREENBERG | Beast

'Casey 01' by Jill Greenberg

JILL GREENBERG | Beast
350 Dundas St. West, Toronto
April 1 - 15, 2017
Opening reception: Saturday, April 1st from 2-4pm
Artist in attendance

Opening April 1st , Bau-Xi Photo features animal portraits by Canadian-born, New York based photographer Jill Greenberg. Visitors are offered the rare opportunity to view these expressive subjects as they are captured with a traditional portrait setup. Humorous and satirical, these images prompt considerations of the difference between human and beast: “They are us and the opposite of us at the same time,” says Greenberg, “...they seem to be looking back at us, sometimes judging, sometimes in shock.  Is it something we’ve done? Maybe it is just that some of us are trying to pretend we aren’t related. For anyone who doubts Darwin, look in the monkey mirror and think again.”

Jill Greenberg is an award winning photographer for both her commercial and fine art projects. She has been exhibited worldwide, with her work collected by both private collectors and public institutions, including the Portland Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

MICHAEL WOLF | CITY: Michael Wolf Showcase

Michael Wolf, Transparent City 16

MICHAEL WOLF | CITY: Michael Wolf Showcase

350 Dundas St. W, Toronto
March 4 - 18, 2017

On display at Bau-Xi Photo, view a selection of works from Michael Wolf's Tokyo Compression, Architecture of Density, Transparent City, and Paris Rooftops series. From the intimate to the alienating, this exhibition captures the nature of urban experience across four cities: Tokyo, Hong Kong, Chicago, and Paris.

Tokyo's claustrophobic subway systems reveal the conditions of the city’s population, and document rapidly expanding urban-industrial centers. Foregrounded views of Hong Kong, Chicago, and Paris skylines magnify perspective and present the cityscape in rhythmic layers of architecture, history, and human intervention. Together, works from each series show Wolf’s commitment to documenting the city as a space we both inhabit and behold.

BARBARA COLE | Falling Through Time
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
April 1-22, 2017

Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present Barbara Cole's latest series, Falling Through Time as part of the 2017 Capture Photography Festival. An artist talk will be hosted at the gallery at 2pm at the opening reception on Saturday, April 1st.  

Falling Through Time is a resurfacing—of not just time and place, but Cole too, who collaborates with a past self. An incomplete project comes full circle as the English garden series becomes background to the artist’s captivating underwater portraits. The result is a visual study of time in which personal and mythical histories—refracted through the water surface—layer to create ethereal scenes with an editorial edge. “These women do not exist in a moment in time,” says Cole, but rather alongside it, as extra-temporal travellers who float between history’s layers with confidence and mystery.

JANNA WATSON | STILL LIFE

Janna Watson studio

JANNA WATSON | Still Life
340 Dundas St. West, Toronto
April 1 - 15, 2017

Bau-Xi Toronto is pleased to present Still Life, an exhibition of paintings by Janna Watson. The irony of the phrase “still life” is not lost on the artist; her paintings are anything but still, and certainly alive.  In a gestural style characteristic of Watson’s work to date, Still Life is about buzzing paint strokes and peripatetic lines cutting through calm— like cracks in marble, or bursts of lightning in a cloud. Life, in other words, must always leak into stasis. Watson describes this concept, realized in paint, as “a finely drawn but powerful distinction between moments… masses of colourful chaos anchored in the abyss, frozen in time, demanding observation.”

Watson’s work can be found in significant collections including the TD Bank Financial Group, CIBC, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and the HBC Global Art Collection in New York. She is based in Toronto.

JAMIE EVRARD | RESTLESS SPRING

JAMIE EVRARD | Restless Spring
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
March 4 - 18, 2017

Jamie Evrard's latest series, Restless Spring shows the artist confidently exploring the potential of her oil medium.Sharp strokes of lively green weave between voluminous blooms, making each panel alive with organic density and painterly lightness. Evrard's reference to flowers at their aesthetic peak is a meditation on the subject of transformation, which is central to the exhibition's theme.  “Life changes, so your paintings change,” says the artist, referring to the evolution of her practice.

Evrard's work is included in collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, Vancouver Art Gallery, Seattle Arts Commission Public Works Collection, Government of BC, Ministry of Culture Art Collection, Burnaby Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Simon Fraser University, Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery, University of Victoria, The Claridge Collection, Montreal. Jamie Evrard received a B.A. in Art and Anthropology from Brown University and an M.A. and M.F.A. in studio art with a concentration in printmaking from the University of Iowa.

CORI CREED | STAGE

CORI CREED | Stage

340 Dundas St. W, Toronto
March 4 - 18, 2017

Visit Bau-Xi Toronto this March to enjoy the latest series by landscape painter Cori Creed. Stage represents a project to capture fleeting glimpses of nature, to isolate in paint the total experience of a scene brimming with life. For the artist, painting is an exploration of this temporal and material process, with the final canvas continuing to unfold before our eyes in vibrant hues and strong painterly forms. Time becomes an essential medium for Creed, who both relishes and contends with the impossible task of rendering an elusive moment. Lush trees bow in the wind, waves lap against the shoreline, and soft clouds build on the horizon, with the artist's characteristic splashes and drips infusing each world with perspective and spontaneity. The resulting works are scenes of nature that play out indefinitely on a painted stage. 

Cori Creed was born in Vancouver in 1973. She studied Fine Art at Simon Fraser University and Design at Capilano College. Her work has been collected and exhibited in both Canada and abroad.

JANNA WATSON | SOMETHING IN THE AIR

JANNA WATSON | Something in the Air
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
February 4 - 25, 2017

There’s something to be said about the simultaneous looseness and order in Janna Watson’s latest paintings. Watson's latest exhibition utilizes paint, pastels and ink to balance shape and colour harmoniously.  Stained panels of loose, gradated paint offer a quiet backdrop for brilliant plumes of colour.  A new lightness emerges within the characteristic abstract marks of Something in the Air.  The distinct half-moon shape of this current body of work appears billowing and free, like clouds separating and reshaping across the sky.  The stark ink lines have graduated from a cross-hatched nets, holding the abstraction within place to become directional lines guiding the viewer's gaze. A dichotomy achieved through playing with differing media within a single composition, Something in the Air activates all of the five bodily senses allowing the viewer to perceive and react to the emotional and rational experiences of the artist.

Nostalgia, poignancy, and the magnificent innocence that characterize Casey McGlynn's style of drawing and mixed media paintings continue into a colourful, multilayered documentation of life. In Domestic Animals, McGlynn integrates his memory and his present family state: paintings include different settings of home, of house, the covers of specific editions of each book that McGlynn has ever read.

Domestic Animals speaks to both exterior and interior domestic landscapes, signifying an anticipation of the future. Varying from his previous works, McGlynn’s Domestic Animals reveals the tension between responsibility, stability, and the child within.

ALEX CAMERON | RAINBOW STATION

 

Alex Cameron, Breezy, 2016, Oil on Canvas, 30 X 38 in. , $6800 ACQUIRE

 

ALEX CAMERON | RAINBOW STATION

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.

PAT O'HARA | LINEARITY

PAT O'HARA | Linearity
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
January 7 - 18, 2017

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.
