Toronto. Acclaimed Canadian Visual Artist to exhibit at Bau-Xi Gallery. Bobbie Burgers! Lovely Fugitive solo exhibition. June 7 – 24, 2014. Opening reception Saturday, JUNE 7, 2-4 pm.
Bobbie Burgers is an internationally recognized artist, well known for her large scale paintings possessing strong, assured brush work and a keen contemporary sense of colour. Her work possesses a lusciousness; smooth yet wild textures and colours command the viewers attention and portray her subjects as fleeting moments in time. Believing that the tragedy of beauty is its inevitability to fade, Burgers’ work delves into complex and evolving ideas surrounding life and the contradictions that exist within it.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Bobbie Burgers received a B.A. in Art History in 1996 from the University of Victoria, and has been represented by the Bau-Xi Gallery for over a decade. With over 60 solo exhibitions, Burgers has attained international stature.
