SALON NINETY ONE CONTEMPORARY ART COLLECTION

CURRENT EXHIBITION


 

GEORGINA-BERENS | SAFEHOLD

ENDLESS

An exploration of transience, process, and surface

A group exhibition opening Wednesday the 23rd of May 2018

Featured Artists | Amber Moir, Gabrielle Raaff, Georgina Berens, Natasha Norman
Medium | Print, Painting

“Amber Moir, Natasha Norman and Gabrielle Raaff have each visited Japan, while Georgina Berens spent some time in Finland. Quite clearly their experiences in these places have left an indelible mark on all of their practices.

While Japan and Finland are worlds apart, there is some commonality. In many ways, the two represent respectively the eastern- and northernmost reaches of human settlement. In these extremes, as much by necessity as by practice, human culture is closely bound by and deeply immersed in the elements and seasons, in their states and cycles.

Amongst all four of these artists is insistence on the transitory over the permanent, and on process over result. And there is a shared concern with surface, even where imagery comes to the fore, in all of their work. Importantly, there is also something intangible, elusive, something that resists a definitive conclusion in all of the results. This, I would contend, represents in part each artist’s response to the above-mentioned environments.”

[Excerpt from an introductory essay written by Paul Edmunds, May 2018]

Tara Deacon is a South African illustrator and painter whose work explores the naive and simple nature of everyday observations. Her curious nature to play with colours and how they work with one another in a composition express a cohesive flavour of optimism. Her illustrations are brought to life in an array of bright and vibrant colours using gouache and an endless supply of unwashed paint palettes. She currently lives and works in Berlin where she works on editorial and commercial illustration projects in London, South Africa and Berlin.
