Robert Marchessault | The Konyali Tree

Robert Marchessault | The Konyali Tree
June 18-30, 2022 
340 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present, The Konyali Tree, the highly anticipated exhibition by Canadian painter Robert Marchessault. The artist has devoted his practice to an ongoing exploration of the interconnection between the atmosphere and the self. His fascination with memory-based landscape painting is expressed through his extensive body of work depicting single trees that often hover in a timeless space.

Marchessault is a renowned visual artist who has been represented by Bau-Xi Gallery since the early 1990s. His latest work draws the viewer in to experience his fascination with space, light, texture, atmosphere, and distance. The paintings project a non-verbal understanding of the spectator as the subject and vice versa - a perception where boundaries are illusions.

Born in Montreal, he received his BFA at Concordia University, and his MA from University of Toronto. Robert Marchessault has received numerous grants and awards from the Ontario Arts Council, Swedish Institute, Brucebo Foundation, and the Canadian Scandinavian Foundation. His work has been exhibited across North America and Europe and is included in multiple private and public collections.
