Bau-Xi Gallery is delighted to present All the Colours of the Moon, an all-new exhibition by Toronto-based artist, Nicole Katsuras. 

For centuries, we have looked to the moon for inspiration, interpreting its surface, and reconciling these interpretations with the beliefs and ideas of our times. Today, the moon remains an object for the imagination to explore while becoming a part of our collective memory and history.

All the Colours of the Moon draws its title from the photographic series, 48 Colours of the Moon, by artist Marcella Giulia Pace which captured lunar variations over a decade, collecting them in one striking composite to showcase the moon's many different faces, colours, and shapes, influenced by the earth's changing atmospheric molecules, light and materials.

The paintings featured in All the Colours of the Moon are lyrical abstractions rooted in Katsuras’ stream of consciousness and intuitive mark-making methods. Full of movement, colour, and form, the artist expertly juxtaposes varied gradient grounds with radiant thin and thick oil paint dragged, brushed, pushed, pulled, and extruded onto the canvas. Painting is let loose in service of discovering the medium’s pleasures and possibilities.

The gestural works of Abstract Expressionism, Ukiyo-e, Cobra, Impressionism, and the notable series by Taiso Yoshitoshi’s One Hundred Aspects of the Moon, all serve as influences on the collection, however, there is no single narrative that underpins Katsuras’ work. The viewer is invited to contemplate and interpret these abstract dreamscapes and floating worlds of spectral forms.
