About

This June, Bau-Xi Gallery | Dufferin is thrilled to present "The Universe Dreams With Us," the highly anticipated solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist, Steven Nederveen. This show will be exhibited at the gallery’s Toronto flagship location at 1384 Dufferin Street from June 6th to 27th, 2024. Join the gallery for an opening reception on Saturday, June 8th, 2024 from 3 pm to 5 pm with the artist in attendance. 

In this newest series, the artist transports the viewer to a dreamlike world that inspires us to connect with nature and the universe. By using his hallmark techniques, the artist develops a magical realism that insists on new perspectives on the landscape genre.

“This body of work brings us into a liminal space between the vastness of our ocean and the timeless power of the sublime. A dreamlike world, connecting nature and the ethereal realm. ‘The Universe Dreams With Us’ brings out a world of colours and warm glows to give us a more personal and compassionate version of the universe, one that is in union with us. 

I intentionally draw from the Abstract Expressionists in this work to use similar signifiers like Mark Rothko’s framing of colour blocks and Barnett Neuman’s ‘zip’ lines. Both artists were interested in the transcendent experience as well.” - Steven Nederveen, 2024
