Vancouver art events. Andre Petterson at Bau-Xi. Impressions of Africa. Opening Reception at Bau-Xi Gallery Vancouver: Saturday, February 22nd, 2-4 pm, main floor gallery, artist in attendance. FEBRUARY 22 – MARCH 8, 2014.

The latest series by internationally recognized Vancouver-based artist, Andre Petterson, features mixed media black-and-white images inspired by his time in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and Cape Town.

“On safari, I encountered many animals but the two that offered me the most inspiration were the zebra and the elephant. It felt metaphorical, the black and white stripes of the zebra – similar, yet different, on each one. The power in numbers they possess as they crowd together in a hypnotic stance. They’re ability to run and separate when threatened. The elephant, organic and powerful, quiet and determined, seems to own the landscape.

My inspiration comes from all of this and will result in a series of works, for the most part, in tonnes of black and white, in layers and groupings of images that will, collectively, become my African impressions.”

Andre Petterson has exhibited in both private and public galleries in Canada and the United States. He is the recipient of The National Film Board of Canada Award, and has work featured in numerous private and public collections including Canada Council Art Bank, Canadian Airlines, Vancouver General Hospital, and Laxton & Company.
