Sheri Bakes Profiled in Canadian Art

Vancouver painter Sheri Bakes was recently profiled in Canadian Art on her work in relationship to living with aphantasia, a condition that eliminates one's ability to mentally visualize imagery. In the intimate interview, Sheri speaks candidly about how her painting practice and style was dramatically altered by an inability to access the 'mind's eye.' Undeterred, Sheri learned to paint again from scratch. Sheri’s resilience and determination led to an unforeseen relationship to the process of painting that creates hope and vitality within her canvases.

In The Studio with David T. Alexander

A rewarding day was spent with David making the final selection of paintings for the BC artist's highly anticipated upcoming solo show opening June 10th at Bau-Xi Vancouver. The artist continues to surprise us with new modes of mark-making and an unpredictable and riveting use of colour in both his landscapes and his 'wet' series. We can't wait to unveil this stunning and ambitious new body of work.

"Land and Mindscape : Perceptions and Sensations" opens June 10th at Bau-Xi Vancouver

David has often said some of his most favoured paint brushes are the ones that are the most worn and paint encrusted ones because they make the most original and interesting marks on the canvas.


The studio floor wears the patina of countless hours spent painting here.


The final selection for the show has been made late in the day after much deliberation

New Artist: Mel Gausden

Bau-Xi is thrilled to announce the latest addition to the gallery stable: Toronto painter Mel Gausden.

Mel Gausden explores themes of personal and cultural identity through traditions of self-portraiture and landscape painting. Her interests lie in combining visual markers and signifiers of nostalgia and Canadiana with painterly gesture, mark-making and bold highlights. The artist applies neon silhouettes evocative of “instagram-esque” colour filters to highlight the inherent distortion of our own personal narratives. In the end, these visual narratives end up as hybrids, part-reality and part-dreamscape.

Mel Gausden earned her Bachelor’s of Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2009. She continues to live and work out of her studio in Toronto.

Ted Fullerton installs sculpture commission in St. Albert, Alberta


Ted Fullerton has just returned from St. Albert, Alberta, after installing a commissioned sculpture in St. Albert Place. The sculpture is installed in the main lobby entrance to the building designed by well-known Canadian architect, Douglas Cardinal. The 9 foot tall sculpture is called ‘Becoming’, and is symbolic of a monumental cocoon/chrysalis at a point of a butterfly's emergence from a state of metamorphosis.


Concept Statement from the Artist:

The sculpture is symbolic of a monumental cocoon/chrysalis at a point of a butterfly's emergence from a state of metamorphosis. It is that magical moment of realization where transition/emergence is realized. This sculpture represents a butterfly's chrysalis which acts as an iconic metaphor for being and becoming that is understood globally for possibilities, growth and transformation. The shape of the cocoon/chrysalis is an archetype where its associative relationship to a place of sanctuary is "understood".


Ted Fullerton ‘Becoming’, 2.74m x .81m x 1.04m, 2017

The artist also provides invaluable personal advice for emerging artists: "Put in the time. You have to dedicate a certain, huge part of your world to the activity. There are no shortcuts. Keep at it. It’s not a Sunday thing."
