Art is why we get up in the morning
A treasure trove of artworks by gallery and guest artists, curated to inspire appreciation for South African contemporary art.
30 November – 1 February
EMMA WILLEMSE translates emotional experiences of displacement to visual statements, interlinking constructs of place, memory and identity and raising consciousness of its effects on the individual. WILLEMSE uses a diverse range of media including suspended installations, print making, drawing and painting, video and photographic processes.
NEILL WRIGHT invokes a laugh with a twist of anxiety by highlighting the ‘everyday’ absurdities in our contemporary society. Working in various mediums, drawing print, painting animation and sculpture, drawing inspiration from media, society and politics in an attempt to create a panoramic view of the issues, difficulties and paradoxes embedded in global and more specifically South African society.
The master painter, ANDRE VAN VUUREN, with over 1000 paintings sold is still creating his best work with sheer energy. Subjects often include places and people he visits in pursuit of introspection, solitude and tranquillity. Using printing, painting and drawing, his abstract expressionism in oil, watercolour and egg tempera mainly concern the conflicts within the individual and man’s purpose of existence.
NEVILLE PETERSEN uses his quiet photographic eye to compose surprisingly elegant images of the industrial structures that constitute South Africa’s fast disappearing gold mines. With sensitivity, he captures the complex and intriguing danger of the mining industry and gives soul to the eerie ruins.
Through his work BENON LUTAAYA expresses the emotions of afflicted personalities who are grappling with their trying circumstances. The fractured nature of his works represents the act of survival, rediscovery and reconfiguration embodied in his collages, through rough application of colour and use of found objects.
Our latest competition winner, VIVIEN KOHLER, creates paint and collage works dealing primarily with the realities of unfair perception. He has developed his theme together with a strong style and some interesting visual devices. His works display technical competence, originality and authenticity. They have emotional power as well as visual impact.
MARK HILLTOUT, ROBYN DENNY, GORDON WILLIAMS, BERNA THOM, TANISHA BHANA and more guest artists…
In the Main Gallery we exhibit curated solo and group shows on a regular basis.
Here we show a wider variety of quality, contemporary works in a range of mediums.
