Michelle Nguyen | Water Features
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
October 16 - 30, 2021

"Water Features", Michelle Nguyen's fourth show with Bau-Xi, uses human and animal bodies in varying states to explore notions of identity, existence, historical erasure and ecological grief. Her canvases are populated by elegant, humorous or even grotesque figures, in conjunction with carefully selected vegetation and objects – all often iterations of classical motifs - that appear to be part dream, part nightmare, struggling with the dissolution of self. Nguyen uses vividly coloured oil paints to conjure worlds dense with magical realism, symbolism, and narrative, prompted by her own experiences and observations as a child of Vietnamese refugees. 

Established in 1965, Bau-Xi Gallery represents both Canadian and International artists, exhibiting Modern and Contemporary painting, photography, and sculpture in three art galleries in Toronto and Vancouver.

We are pleased to provide a range of fine art services including art consultation, in-home trials, delivery, installation, art rental, crating, and shipping.
