JAMIE EVRARD | Restless Spring
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
March 4 - 18, 2017

Jamie Evrard's latest series, Restless Spring shows the artist confidently exploring the potential of her oil medium.Sharp strokes of lively green weave between voluminous blooms, making each panel alive with organic density and painterly lightness. Evrard's reference to flowers at their aesthetic peak is a meditation on the subject of transformation, which is central to the exhibition's theme.  “Life changes, so your paintings change,” says the artist, referring to the evolution of her practice.

Evrard's work is included in collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, Vancouver Art Gallery, Seattle Arts Commission Public Works Collection, Government of BC, Ministry of Culture Art Collection, Burnaby Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Simon Fraser University, Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery, University of Victoria, The Claridge Collection, Montreal. Jamie Evrard received a B.A. in Art and Anthropology from Brown University and an M.A. and M.F.A. in studio art with a concentration in printmaking from the University of Iowa.

Cori Creed in her Studio


340 Dundas St. W, Toronto
March 4 - 18, 2017

Visit Bau-Xi Toronto this March to enjoy the latest series by landscape painter Cori Creed. Stage represents a project to capture fleeting glimpses of nature, to isolate in paint the total experience of a scene brimming with life. For the artist, painting is an exploration of this temporal and material process, with the final canvas continuing to unfold before our eyes in vibrant hues and strong painterly forms. Time becomes an essential medium for Creed, who both relishes and contends with the impossible task of rendering an elusive moment. Lush trees bow in the wind, waves lap against the shoreline, and soft clouds build on the horizon, with the artist's characteristic splashes and drips infusing each world with perspective and spontaneity. The resulting works are scenes of nature that play out indefinitely on a painted stage. 

Cori Creed was born in Vancouver in 1973. She studied Fine Art at Simon Fraser University and Design at Capilano College. Her work has been collected and exhibited in both Canada and abroad.

JANNA WATSON | Something in the Air
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
February 4 - 25, 2017

There’s something to be said about the simultaneous looseness and order in Janna Watson’s latest paintings. Watson's latest exhibition utilizes paint, pastels and ink to balance shape and colour harmoniously.  Stained panels of loose, gradated paint offer a quiet backdrop for brilliant plumes of colour.  A new lightness emerges within the characteristic abstract marks of Something in the Air.  The distinct half-moon shape of this current body of work appears billowing and free, like clouds separating and reshaping across the sky.  The stark ink lines have graduated from a cross-hatched nets, holding the abstraction within place to become directional lines guiding the viewer's gaze. A dichotomy achieved through playing with differing media within a single composition, Something in the Air activates all of the five bodily senses allowing the viewer to perceive and react to the emotional and rational experiences of the artist.

CASEY MCGLYNN | Domestic Animals

January 21 - Feb 2, 2017
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver

Nostalgia, poignancy, and the magnificent innocence that characterize Casey McGlynn's style of drawing and mixed media paintings continue into a colourful, multilayered documentation of life. In Domestic Animals, McGlynn integrates his memory and his present family state: paintings include different settings of home, of house, the covers of specific editions of each book that McGlynn has ever read.

Domestic Animals speaks to both exterior and interior domestic landscapes, signifying an anticipation of the future. Varying from his previous works, McGlynn’s Domestic Animals reveals the tension between responsibility, stability, and the child within.

Alex Cameron, Breezy, 2016, Oil on Canvas, 30 X 38 in. , $6800 ACQUIRE



January 7 - 21
340 Dundas St. West, Toronto
Opening Reception January 7
2:00 - 4:00 pm

"Rainbow Station" is an exhibition of new work by one of Canada’s favourite contemporary landscape painters, whose explorative relationship with colour and texture has defined his work for over 40 years. Immersed in the arts from a young age, Alex Cameron was introduced to New York City’s Abstract Expressionist movement in the 1960s, and witnessed concurrent and equally powerful experiments in abstraction back home in Toronto, where he worked as a studio assistant for the late Jack Bush in the mid-1970s. Cameron’s celebration of pure pigment has since characterized his canvases, with his thick painterly application lends lively sculptural form to both his energetic landscapes and non-representational studies. Not only bold and bright, Cameron’s colours are unconventional, inverted, and built up in linear “ropes” of paint—often applied straight from the tube—that make his surfaces hum with life. His subjects—the varied landscapes of Canada observed during his regular coast to coast travels—are not merely captured or recorded in paint, but rather honoured for their complexity; they are organic, total, and magical environments that live and grow.

Alex Cameron’s paintings have been collected extensively in Canada and abroad. Notable collections include the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Bank of Canada, and The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Art Collection.

PAT O'HARA | Linearity
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
January 7 - 18, 2017

From her more representative works of snowy scenes, to soft patterns of concentric lines, and pastel hues, Pat O’Hara’s recent paintings explore the motif of strings, but with a higher velocity: strokes are soft and bright, simultaneously explosive and strong. There is visible confidence in the artist's choice of bold colours, while her inclusion of playful accents on white and black strands stand out among the varying chroma, giving these paintings a sense of grounding. Experiments with resin add luminosity and dimension to her work.

Enriched by the shades of forest, sea, and nature, Linearity demonstrates a sense of certainty and assertion in O'Hara's artistry.

Darlene Cole | The Intimates

DARLENE COLE | The Intimates
340 Dundas Street West, Toronto
December 3 - 18
Opening Reception, December 3, 2-4 PM

This December, Bau-Xi Toronto presents The Intimates, an exhibition of new oil paintings by Darlene Cole, running December 3rd - 17th, 2016. For years, Cole has captured the hazy, haunting world of poetry and wonder. Her canvases—dreamy expanses inhabited by spirited figures—are studies of time, memory, and place. In this series, Cole continues to explore the connotative power of interiors, this time with a special focus on personal space and the evocation of memory through sensation. Compelled by what the artist calls her “lust for immediacy,” Cole looks to the inseparable relationship between sense and memory, revealing how the deeply human experience of a particular space in time is also a threshold to shared histories.

DAVID ALEXANDER | Wandering Wants No Root
340 Dundas St. West
November 5 - 19

Exciting new canvases by David T. Alexander are on display this November at Bau-Xi Toronto.Wandering Wants No Root is a phrase that for Alexander describes a process, a distinct aesthetic, and a painted philosophy. Much in the same way that the artist’s brush wanders across his canvases—with linear strokes dissolving into pools of light and colour—so too does Alexander himself wander conceptually through his re-created, reflected worlds.  New work communicates a nomadic approach to both paint and process: tall reeds spontaneously sprout out of their own reflection, the water’s surface a space of distortion and multiplication. Thick brush overlays landscapes with dark, impenetrable screens; Alexander’s land is just within view, not always entirely accessible, and often unattached to clear, geographic referents. Wandering Wants No Root captures land as a map of shimmering surfaces, speculative spaces that bend and move before our eyes.
