A Stranger in a Strange Land - BFA Thesis Exhibition

Mao Guolixuan


Meet and Greet on Saturday, April 20, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.


Mao Guolixuan came to Canada from Nanjing, China in 2014 to study fine arts. In Canada, away from family and friends, feeling homesick, and dealing with language barriers, she felt lost and unsure about her identity. The artwork in this exhibition represents her emotions and memories during this time, on her journey to self-discovery. Her works are composed of watercolour, acrylic, oil painting, and ceramics. Each artwork is a fusion of Eastern culture with Western material. Mao employs Chinese ink and wash in an impressionistic way and records the artistic impression of different cultural experience.

Colour Distinctive: Art, Soul and Spirit

Genevie Henderson & Angelo Lillico


Exhibit opening and artist’s talk: Sunday, May 5, at 2:00 p.m.


Understanding an artist’s purpose and meaning is an elusive concept that is not easily articulated, even by artists. The artist’s journey is frequently fraught with doubts and questions related to “Why make art?” The value of art is often defined monetarily. Henderson and Lillico suggest that an artist’s life reaches beyond this restrictive purpose. For each artist, the path of making art has different meanings, while spirituality plays a significant role in their individual creativity.
