VIRGINIA MAK | COMPOSED
April 6 – 20, 2019
350 Dundas Street West, Toronto
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, April 6 from 2 – 4 PM, Artist in Attendance.
This April, Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present Composed, a new series by Toronto-based photographer Virginia Mak. In this latest body of work, Mak is interested in capturing the creative spirit in visual form. In Composed, Mak’s signature soft-focus solitary figures reveal themselves through a veil of superimposed hand-painted motifs, alluding to a certain artistic sensibility. The resulting image shifts from portrait to poetic character study. The delicate process pushes the medium of photography beyond its conventional limits, marrying the photographic surface and experimental, painterly effect.
Virginia Mak was born in Hong Kong. After graduating with a Philosophy Degree from the University of Calgary, she studied Photography at the Ontario College of Art. Mak’s photographs can be found in public and private collections in North America and Hong Kong.
