SHI LE WARMNESS IN THE WOODS
Opening Reception at Bau-Xi Gallery Toronto: Saturday, July 6, 2-4 pm.
Shi Le’s newest exhibition captures the natural beauty and colour of Ontario’s forest landscapes. Using generously applied paint, the artist captures the fleeting impression of light as it falls on open meadows or as it is filtered through the forest canopy. These heavily textured, intensely hued, and generously scaled paintings give the viewer the illusion of being able to walk directly into these vivid autumn scenes.
Shi Le received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Sichuan Fine Arts in China and a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo. Over the last twenty years, he has taught painting at various post-secondary institutions including Lakehead University, University of Waterloo and the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. More…

STUART SLIND COMPOSING BEAUTY
Opening Reception at Bau-Xi Gallery Vancouver: Thursday, June 27th, 6-8 pm, artist in attendance.
Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present Composing Beauty, by Canadian painter Stuart Slind. In this latest body of work, Slind explores the serenity and repose to be found in still lifes of everyday objects. Using only a light, modest colour palette and a simple composition Slind captures perfectly the inherent harmony of these objects in their environment.
“I follow the passage of light as it moves around the fruit and along the gentle folds of cloth. For me, this gentle stillness evokes a deeper meaning.”
Slind studied art at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and the Seattle Academy of Realist Art. His true direction as an artist came from his travels in Northern Europe. It was in the galleries and museums of Amsterdam, Oslo and other European cities that he found the historical and cultural ground in which to locate his paintings. More…
