Drew Burnham discusses his upcoming exhibition

DREW BURNHAM | Nature's Conduit
340 Dundas St. West, Toronto
April 22 - May 5, 2017

We are happy to share a glimpse of Drew Burnham's studio as he prepares for his upcoming exhibition in Toronto. Drew has been working for the past 12 months to complete this show which will be unveiled in a presale prior to the show's official opening on April 22nd. Drew Burnham has experienced sold-out shows for over 10 years.

About his work, Burnham states:

"For the last 8 years or so, and a few periods in the past, the paintings and I have an unbalanced understanding.  It requires that I get there in front of the canvas and there, get rid of the world and my mind and leave behind a clean conduit.  Then...if I even become conscious at all, I am a rock, a barnacle, a tree bough, moss,or some abstract who-knows-what, being transferred to the canvas by my brush hand...there is only a steady stream of laying in strokes, colours, shapes, decisively placed and guided by a source, secretive and remote.  It is that source which has “granted” me the right to be its conduit, and which requires that I be worthy...It is extremely exciting to get to watch the image come up with that which my own human facilities never could."

ARTIST Q & A: CORI CREED

Photo by Sarah Jane Photography

 

 

1)      Describe your perfect day at the studio—what are your ideal conditions for creativity?

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi delivered a wonderful Ted talk on “flow.” I have sought out theories and discussions on similar topics, because for me to do my best work I believe that I have to reach a place where the subconscious takes over, or at least takes the helm. I have been lucky in that I have never found myself short of inspiration, and so undisturbed time is my biggest challenge. Finding stretches of it where I can start to unfold my ideas and inspiration, and then gradually let go of everything but the act...

2)       Your latest exhibition is called ‘Stage.’ This word has such a history, and rich connotations. What about the concept of the stage resonates with your practice?

Constructing tension between a perception of a physical place, and the awareness of the mediums and their application is an ongoing quest for me. Setting a stage to reveal an emotional experience: mine, in my absorbing and retelling of an inspiration, and the viewer’s experience, in the way that they view the “set” through their own filters. Interrupting our willingness to accept illusions of perspective with marks that so obviously live on a two dimensional surface. It seems theatrical in a way. A stage. A story.

 

Painting detail

 

3)       This new work demonstrates some new palettes for you—are there particular pigments or contrasts that are exciting you these days?

Pink is such a loaded colour. This could be a long answer I think! I will keep it short though. I have avoided it in the past, but I have pulled it out lately and have been appreciating the emotional response that I now have to it.

 

 

4)      What about the motif of the birch tree in particular inspires you?  Are there other naturally occurring forms that lend themselves well to paint?

I am drawn to patterns and textures that occur in nature, and birch trees are such a fabulous place to find both. The graphic black and white of the trees allows for endless flexibility and interest when partnered with other pigments. They are a perfect starting point for explorations in mediums and their application. They are represented within the pieces while at the same time generously accepting of abstraction. Birches, grasses, and many other tree forms allow me to tell a tale of found beauty--of human perception, as well as of paint.

MICHAEL WOLF | CITY: Michael Wolf Showcase

Michael Wolf Collection

MICHAEL WOLF | CITY: Michael Wolf Showcase

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

On display at Bau-Xi Photo, view a selection of works from Michael Wolf's Tokyo Compression, Architecture of Density, Transparent City, and Paris Rooftops series. From the intimate to the alienating, this exhibition captures the nature of urban experience across four cities: Tokyo, Hong Kong, Chicago, and Paris.

Tokyo's claustrophobic subway systems reveal the conditions of the city’s population, and document rapidly expanding urban-industrial centers. Foregrounded views of Hong Kong, Chicago, and Paris skylines magnify perspective and present the cityscape in rhythmic layers of architecture, history, and human intervention. Together, works from each series show Wolf’s commitment to documenting the city as a space we both inhabit and behold.

DAVID BURDENY SELECTED AS A FEATURED EXHIBITION FOR CONTACT 2017

David Burdeny artwork presented by Bau-Xi Photo

Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present Oceans, the latest series by David Burdeny. Oceans explores the geological formations of water bodies in the Bahamas, Australia, and Europe, capturing the complex, abstract qualities of the deep sea. Burdeny’s scenes are celebrations of the natural world, but, below the surface, they map a precious and precarious resource. Serpentine sandbars stretch into a Bahamian horizon; Australian bays are sharply rendered fields of impossible blue. Long exposures—evident in views of Sicily—soften waves, revealing formations beneath the water. Bodies that dot the cliff sides cast long shadows, indelible marks on an expanse otherwise untouched. The contemporary sublime is for Burdeny both a call to action that compels one to protect her world, and a message about culpability. Receding vistas are the dreamy escape; human presence is the sobering reminder. Like the depths his exposures reveal, Burdeny unearths layers—of not just the landscape—but the fraught relationship between the earth we inhabit and the environmental future we inherit. 

David Burdeny (b. 1968. Winnipeg, Canada) holds Masters degrees in Architecture and Interior Design, and is the recipient of notable photography awards including Photographer of the Year (Nature category) at the International Photography Awards.

Anticipated exhibition coming to Toronto

Cori Creed's anticipated exhibition coming to Toronto

CORI CREED | Stage

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.
