Bau-Xi Gallery is pleased to present the work of Quebec artist John Barkley. In this recent body of work, John Barkley uses the language of abstraction as a vehicle to explore humanity’s relationship to nature and his existential concerns.

Although Barkley’s pieces often approach pure abstraction they maintain a reference to landscape and form. As a dedicated scholar, his interest in psychology, philosophy and inter-connective consciousness significantly inform his work.

In 2000, Barkley wrote a Master’s thesis which created a new hermeneutic of art, based upon the work of Jung, Tillich, and Heidegger, it was subsequently applied to the work of Roland Poulin.

John Barkley lives and works within the Gatineau Hills of Quebec, and has been working as an artist since 1996. Barkley’s works have been exhibited extensively and have been reviewed in LeDroit, The Ottawa Citizen, and The Globe and Mail. His paintings are part of numerous private and corporate collections.
