Bau-Xi Gallery in Vancouver is presenting Barbara Cole’s Underworld through June 1. The Toronto-based artist explores figure transformation in her work and has been photographing the human figure in the medium of water over the last decade. Cole explains, “Photography affords me the ability to play with notions of time and place. By seeing through water, rather than through air, I am able to re-envision the nature of our relationship to our surroundings.”
