The Lorax Dreams is being held to honour the 30 years since Bau-Xi Gallery first began representing Robert Marchessault’s career. We look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion alongside the artist with an Opening Reception on Saturday, November 10th, 2-4pm.

Robert Marchessault’s newest body of work evolves from his continued interest in the contemporary, sublime landscape, with a renewed focus on texture and abstraction. The series seeks to reveal the artist’s emerging understanding of the non-duality of nature through the depiction of the sole-standing tree. Marchessault’s preferred subject has gone through a range of artistic treatments since they were born in the 1970s; seeing a shifting approach to space, light, textures, atmosphere, and distance. Marchessault’s trees are created from memory, as opposed to en plein air drawings or photographs. He states “I use memory as a filtering agent to remove nonessential visual elements. When a work is successful, it has a poetry that presents some aspect of my understanding of who I am."
