STEVE BAYLIS: MANIFESTATION OF INTENTION
JANUARY 13 – FEBRUARY 24, 2018
Artist Talk: Sunday January 14, 2 p.m.
Reception: Sunday January 14, 3- 5 p.m.
North Vancouver artist Steve Baylis combines a range of unique influences with his own driven spiritual inquiry. Drawing on a personal meditative practice, Baylis’ work is informed by his own intuition, memory, experience, and feeling. Inspired by principles of theoretical physics, the Unified Field Theory in particular, his bold and intricate paintings both draw viewers in to investigate their rich details and send them back to consider the works as a whole. The pieces are, as the artist describes them, complex expressions of a simple thought: “Each work is a gestalt – a carefully balanced visual whole; in focus, but free and moving.”
Steve Baylis (b. 1980, Vancouver BC) studied Art & Design at Kwantlen University and continued his training at Capilano University, where he mentored under artist Kiff Holland.
