In his new chapter of work entitled Lunar Cycles, from The Curve of Time series, internationally recognized BC artist Tom Burrows pays homage to the lunar-cycle-driven tidal waters that are integral to The Curve of Time. Here, Tom recalls his first encounter with that tidal power and how it shaped his approach to art. Lunar Cycles opens on April 1 at Bau-Xi Vancouver and runs through April 12, 2023.
Since 2019, Scheurmann has kept studios in remote, wooded locations in order to document the incremental approach of climate change while simultaneously working on conservation and activism efforts. In 2021, the artist was invited to participate in the Eden Grove AiR, a residency at the Fairy Creek Blockades on unceded Pacheedaht territory. During his four-month stay at the blockade camps, Scheurmann served not only as a resident artist, but also a journalist and legal witness in face of the injustices carried out by law enforcement against Forest Protectors who were fighting to save some of the last remaining highly productive ancient forests in Canada.
