SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION | CANDY

SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION | CANDY
3045 Granville Street
August 12 - 26, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 12th from 2-4 PM 

Candy, a mass-produced, high-fructose delicacy of unnatural sweetness, colour and form has been a popular indulgence since the Industrial Revolution. Our ongoing affection for the novel treat, valued more for enjoyment than its nutritional value, guides Bau-Xi’s selection of bright artwork in high gloss finishes and delicious surface texture to evoke the senses.

For its annual August Group show, Bau-Xi Gallery presents CANDY, a curated exhibition of selected work by gallery artists. CANDY will explore the various synonyms and complexities inherent in our relationship with the decadent treat. As a euphemism for sex, works by Janna Watson and Kathryn Macnaughton reference the body as a site of pleasure and physical consumption. With a nod to Pop Art’s exploration of the beauty and dark side of mass consumption, popular culture and kitsch, CANDY will shed light on the confection’s allure - gluttony, addiction, nostalgia and artifice through painters Pat O’Hara, Janna Watson, Alex Cameron, Steven Nederveen and photographers Joshua Jensen-Nagle, and Heidi Leverty.

Whether you like it coated, spun, crystallized or melted, join Bau-Xi Gallery this August for CANDY: a sugar high journey through art.

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.
