Bau-Xi Gallery is excited to present a new collection of works by Cori Creed, an established Canadian painter who captures the wealth of texture and colour in the Canadian scenery with joy and vitality. As referenced by the show’s title, Switchbacks, Creed’s current practice oscillates between abstraction and representation, story and storytelling, as well as depth and surface.
Creed aims to disrupt illusion with reminders of the artist’s hand and paint itself. Ultimately, the viewer is allowed to be continually aware of both the surface and the process. Creed’s exploratory mark-making delights in its variety; thick and thin, slow and fast, dry and wet brush, and reflects the artist’s keen interest in the language of paint.
Creed was born in Vancouver and studied Fine Art at Simon Fraser University, and Design at Capilano College. Creed’s work has been placed in various private and corporate collections across Canada. She has been represented by Bau-Xi Gallery since 2011, and currently lives and works in West Vancouver, British Columbia.
