The Thompson Landry Gallery is excited to welcome Virginie Bocaert, for her third solo exhibition in Toronto. Body and Soul is comprised of works from her eagerly anticipated new series which exudes deep emotions through her beautifully expressive style. Bocaert’s work encapsulates feminine sensuality exploring, the intimate link between our physical body and the spiritual nature of the soul.
Virginie Bocaert’s emotionally inspired paintings are like breathlessly diving into the figures that emerge from the depths of her backgrounds. In her latest series, each work exudes a raw passion. Bocaert’s style has evolved by her use of both photography and paint on her canvases with the figures are becoming much more developed, and taking on a strong personality of their own.

This exhibition constitutes the first comprehensive survey of works by this ninetheenth century carver of wood, argillite and metal and affords a rare opportunity to consider Charles Edenshaw’s creative output as a totality. It is structured around four principal themes that expand on aspects of Edenshaw’s art and his legacy. The first section, Haida Traditions, features a number of objects the artist made for his family and for practical use that demonstrate the depth of cultural values imbedded in his work. The next section, featuring carved platters, is focused on Edenshaw’s representation of Haida stories and his development of Narrative structures. The section that follows is dedicated to Edenshaw’s celebrated Style and draws attention to defining characteristics of his aesthetic through a range of objects, including model poles and bracelets as well as the painted designs on hats and baskets. The final section centres on the artist’s incorporation of diverse cultural influences and the complex New Forms that resulted through increased contact with Europeans, such as walking sticks and silver spoons.
Charles Edenshaw is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Robin K. Wright, Professor of Art History, Curator and Director of the Bill Holm Center at the Burke Museum, University of Washington and Daina Augaitis, Chief Curator/Associate Director of the Vancouver Art Gallery, with Haida advisors James Hart and Robert Davidson. The exhibition is made possible with support from The Audain Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Government of Canada through the Museums Assistance Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage, and Mr. David Aisenstat.
