David Leventi: Palazzi
10/5/2013 - 10/19/2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5, 2-4PM, artist in attendance. As an encore to his renowned opera house series ‘Bjoerling’s Larynx’, New York-based photographer David Leventi presents a new body of work documenting the interiors of palatial residences on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. In ‘Palazzi,’ Leventi captures the allure of these private spaces by enticing the viewer with privileged glimpses of the opulent décor and rich furnishings within the historic buildings. Using only the diffused light from the windows to illuminate each scene, these grandiose social spaces are rendered quiet and empty; the contents of the palazzi become hauntingly beautiful personifications of the Venetian aristocracy who are notably absent from each room. David Leventi’s photography has been widely published in Culture + Travel, Vanity Fair, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, BlackBook, Travel & Leisure, Best Life, Forbes, I.D. Magazine, New York and LIFE Magazine.

Chris Shepherd turned to photography as a means to familiarize himself with Toronto, a city he initially felt very separate from. It was this process of exploration that piqued Shepherd’s interest in urban landscapes and led to a long-running fascination with the often passed-over or under-appreciated tableaus of metropolitan life. The serenity and reserved nature of Shepherd's photographs are a sharp juxtaposition with the locations they are depicting. Shepherd captures fleet-ing moments in time, whether a brief moment of tranquility in the perpetual cycle of arrivals and departures on the Toronto subway system, or the period of time between tenants in commercial build¬ings. Shepherd’s artwork has been exhibited across North America, and is included in major corporate collections in Canada.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, David Burdeny has degrees in Interior design and a Masters in Architecture. Primarily self taught, his architecture and design backgrounds greatly influence his penchant for simple exacting photographs of sky, horizon and the marks humankind leaves behind. Describing his photography as ‘discovery driven,’ Burdeny has travelled to places including Antarctica, Iceland, Brazil, China, France, Italy and Cambodia in pursuit of his work. Influenced by notable photographers such Michael Kenna, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Fay Goodwin, David purposefully photographs in poor light and near darkness. He uses unusually long exposures to see that which our eyes cannot. Moving beyond the literal, his images have been described as ominous, haunting, beautiful and meditative. Burdeny’s work has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He is the recipient of notable photography awards including Photographer of the Year in the Nature Category at the International Photography Awards. Burdeny’s work has been extenstively collected and is included in both private and corporate collections.

Jill Greenberg: “PAINTINGS” – CONTACT Photography Festival, Featured Exhibi
5/1/2016 - 5/31/2016
This May, Bau-Xi Photo presents “Paintings” by Jill Greenberg, a Featured Exhibition in the 2016 Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. Known internationally for her signature aesthetic, Greenberg now experiments with painting as her photographic subject, a venture that challenges ideas about medium, process, and originality. These “Paintings” are single-edition prints that study the interaction of light and painted surface, made unique by Greenberg’s destruction of the initial painting. “Paintings” are engrossing images that at once indulge and deny our senses, provocative surfaces in which paint and photography are each other’s muse. Greenberg has received awards for both her commercial and fine art photography. Her work has been exhibited worldwide, and can be found in many private collections and public institutions. Greenberg currently lives and works from her studio in New York, NY.
