In the large-scale diptych "Habitus", the artist remarks on the crane as a transient structure made ubiquitous by its re-occurrence, a constant fixture of the (to-be) built environment. Its form—perpetually fixed and endlessly repeated— is appropriated as material towards a different sort of construction, becoming distorted and skewed to be realized as shorthand for the rapidity of change and the cyclical undertaking of creative destruction and destructive creation, as it stands amidst a foreground laden with debris.

Andre Petterson's mixed media paintings on panel combine elements of photography, painting and drawing. The artist takes inspiration from his frequent travels abroad, current contemporary art practices, and art history.

Established in 1965, Bau-Xi Gallery represents both Canadian and International artists, exhibiting Modern and Contemporary painting, photography, and sculpture in three art galleries in Toronto and Vancouver.

We are pleased to provide a range of Fine Art services including art consultation, in-home trials, delivery, installation, art rental, crating, and shipping.
