Beatrix Syjuco

BEATRIX SYJUCO (b. 1982, Vancouver, BC)

Daughter of multi-awarded avant-garde artist and feared art critic, Cesare Syjuco and multi-faceted artist, Jean Marie Syjuco, Beatrix Syjuco has been hailed as "a diviner of mysterious spaces - striking personal and emotional chords that are her secret codes, contained within a sudden splash of incarnadine red or veiled behind the grey mist of distant veils" (Cid Reyes, PDI exhibit review, 2020).

Her purely abstract creations are, to the representational, what poetry is to prose, utilizing color, gesture, non-realistic brush-strokes and markings to exalt human emotion in a language that is as mystical as it is visual.

Described by critics as "powerful iconic images carved from the artist's fertile imagination", Beatrix's works have figured prominently in prestigious galleries, museums, private collections, auctions, film and television productions across Europe, Asia, and North America. She is currently represented in Paris, Manila, and British Columbia.


"I aim to give form to the things we feel but cannot see. In the words of writer, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, 'It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; Everything that is essential is invisible to the eye'. I rely heavily on my instincts and work independently of rules and formulaic methods to bring intangible intricacies to life, creating a dialogue between what is palpable and what is illusory, what can be seen and what can be intuited. It is a language of my own that speaks in tongues. I thrive greatly on spontaneity and the element of the unknown. It is in 'not knowing what to paint' that I feel most assured I am tapping into places most people tend to take for granted. There is something so enticing to me about things that remain unseen, unheard, and unspoken of - the visceral, subliminal, incorporeal truths that make our existence rich and meaningful. I try to provide a vessel for these to breathe a life through - inviting divine, almost spiritual qualities to emerge on canvas and evoke emotional responses. I strive to be a conduit for Art to flow from its dimension into ours, to be able to open hearts and minds enough to appreciate beauty that exists beyond concrete reality. My process has always been more subtractive than additive for me. Abstraction liberates my soul, and that can be such a powerful thing."
