TOM BURROWS MORRIS AND HELEN BELKIN GALLERY RETROSPECTIVE CATALOGUE LAUNCH
Bau-Xi Vancouver is proud to host the launch of Tom Burrow's Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery retrospective catalogue on Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 6 to 8pm. The reception is open to the public and the artist and curator, Scott Watson, will be in attendance.
The retrospective on one of the most influential artists in the West Coast art scene over the past forty years, Tom Burrows, and the exhibition that preceded the book, presents work by the artist from his early career to the present. The book is a timely refocusing of attention on an artist who has made an immense contribution to the development of art in Vancouver, not only as an artist but as an educator and activist as well. Burrows’s work, which demonstrates an interest in process and new materials, has encompassed a number of disciplines including sculpture, early performance art, video, painting and iconic hand-built houses on the Maplewood Mudflats and Hornby Island. Currently most well known for his innovative monochromatic cast polymer resin “paintings/sculptures” produced during the last forty-five years, the book examines the full breadth of his career with works from the Belkin’s permanent collection as the basis with other works from the artist, collectors and public institutions.
