This July, Bau-Xi Gallery will be presenting the newest paintings by Canadian artist Casey McGlynn.
Created using a range of techniques and collage elements, McGlynn’s paintings are visual composites of autobiography and collective memory; at once literal and endlessly symbolic.
War Horse will prominently feature the artist’s distinctive and symbolic renderings of the horse, with the majestic animal serving as a vessel for visual expressions of McGlynn’s personal history. Highly referential images—historical figures, popular media, textual documents—narrate scenes, while also prompting the viewer’s imagination through allegory and archetype. The collection is rich with offerings of personal and symbolic weight.
McGlynn’s works can be found in a number of private and public collections in both Canada and the US. Most recently his work was acquired for the HBC Global Art Collection in New York.
