Sylvia Tait’s Yesterday And Today

Talented West Coast artist Sylvia Tait describes how chaos informs her work. “Many of my artworks have “hard edge centers.” she says, “which slowly start to disintegrate and fall apart as they extend out to the edges of the surface. Everything falls apart, like life. There is something solid and full of form that is built up over time and then chaos happens. In my artworks, you will notice random words, random pieces, puzzled together kind of like a person’s mental state.”

From February 6th through the 20th, you can see Tait’s new exhibit – Yesterday and Today – at the Bau-xi Gallery on South Granville. It’s a celebration of ‘the West Coast modernist’s storied career and will feature early black and white mixed-media drawings from the artist’s personal archives alongside new canvas and paper works.’

You can see all the works from the show online. Here’s a first peek …
