New artist: Kathryn Macnaughton

 

Bau-Xi is thrilled to announce the latest addition to the gallery stable: Toronto painter Kathryn Macnaughton.

Macnaughton’s abstract paintings are compositional and textural experiments in acrylic. They are also canvases of contradiction: at once contemporary and timeless, flat and sculptural, compiled and uniform, static and unmistakably alive.

Inspired by collage, cut-outs, vintage palettes, and digital illustration, McNaughton’s paintings respond—and inform—the many and converging concerns of the moment: permanence, fragments, history and its ephemera. More than anything, they are playful reminders that the abstract need not be unfamiliar.

A graduate of OCAD, Macnaughton has exhibited in both Canada and abroad since 2010. Recent collaborations include Kit and Ace, Collective Arts Brewery, and Tkees.

Steven Nederveen: A Temperate Nature

Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present A Temperate Nature, a new series of mixed media paintings by Steven Nederveen.
 
Fusing both photography and painting, Steven Nederveen develops a magical realism that inspires us to see the natural world with new eyes. Photographs - taken during his treks through the West Coast mountains and seaside parks - emphasize the emotional memory of his travels.

Nederveen's abstract paintings, debuting for the first time, demonstrate an adventurous foray into colour and non-representational art. Deeply personal and yet universal, Nederveen's work suggests that despite the cosmopolitan aspects of Canadian cities, the gestural movement of waves and trees, the height of our vast mountains, and expanse of our prairies speaks to our shared Canadian cultural identity. Transforming the experience of his travel photographs into free-form shapes, drips and textures spilling freely across the panel surface, Nederveen's abstract works present an evolution of his landscape painting, impelling his practice to explore new and challenging places. 

Show runs June 11 - 25, 2016 at Bau-Xi Vancouver
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, June 11 from 2 - 4 PM, Artist in attendance
TOUR WITH ARTIST: Saturday June 18 at 1pm, in conjunction with the annual South Granville Art Walk.

BARBARA COLE CAPTURES LE PETIT PRINCE

 

Last summer, Barbara Cole was tasked with capturing the magic of Le Petit Prince in the way she knows best: through her underwater camera lens. To express in an image the enduring charm of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s universally adored novella—a seeming impossibility—was for the Toronto artist a challenge met with energy and enthusiasm. Alongside the celebrated set and costume designer Michael Levine, dancer and choreographer Guillaume Côté, and with principal dancers Tanya Howard and Dylan Tedaldi, Cole plunged underwater to create images characteristic of her signature, ethereal photographic style. Dancers glided, dived, dipped and floated up through their water stage, finding their characters through explorative movement. The shoot quickly became an exercise in letting go--of the predictable physics so essential to dance, of ordinary orientation and perspective, of reality itself as it gave way to the dreamy, gravity-defying world of Le Petit Prince. More information: National Ballet of Canada website


FALLING THROUGH TIME opens June 11th
Just as Le Petit Prince opens to audiences in Toronto this June, Barbara Cole’s exhibition Falling Through Time debuts at Bau-Xi Photo. This exhibition of new work is best described as a resurfacing—Barbara Cole collaborates with a past self by combining a 20 year old Polaroid series of English gardens as a backdrop to the artist’s captivating underwater portraits. Falling Through Time poetically re-arranges past and present by drawing on personal and collective history, myth, and the porous nature of time in the distinct, contemporary style for which the artist has become known.


Please join the artist at an opening reception on Saturday, June 11th from 2-4pm to see Falling Through Time in person. For artwork inquiries, please email info@bau-xiphoto.com. Exhibition runs June 11 - 25, 2016.

Anthony Redpath exhibition opening today in Vancouver

Image: Anthony Redpath, Additive Mix, chromogenic print, 44 x 96 in, edition of 7.

May 26 - June 7, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, MAY 26TH, 6-9PM
ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE

The industrial history of coastal British Columbia is the focus of Anthony Redpath's latest photographic series. Framing worn-down or vacant industrial buildings with the intention of capturing only a section of the landscape, Redpath positions his lens at an unnerving distance to disorient the viewer by distilling the subject into a series of different planes. Cropping the image close in post production,  RE·FINED verges towards abstraction by removing the directional horizon line in each composition. Enhanced by the complex textures of ribbing, vaulting and rustication in the sugar refinery, pulp mills, and oil refinery that comprise the series, Redpath's attention to detail reveals the effects of time on his subjects as complex, beautiful and indicative of a shift in emphasis within the industrial sectors of coastal British Columbia.  

Following the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky and Candida Hofer, Redpath's lens entices the viewer to go beyond the documentary style and examine closely the surface sensuality and rich palette of a decaying landscape. As critic Sky Gooden has observed, "where the Bechers stood back from their industrial subjects, Redpath rushes in."
