Stellar Show Design_Lightbox_Lo-Res

Designed by Nicole Dalton

Dear Art Lovers & Collectors,

As we reach the end of another year we would like to thank you for your loyal support, patronage & enthusiasm.

According to our annual tradition, 2015 concludes with a salon-style exhibition featuring accessible, affordable artwork across a broad range of mediums by some of Salon Ninety One’s favourite emerging and established local creatives. The exhibition is scheduled to run until the last week of January 2016. Artworks will be rotated regularly & after the opening day, works may be taken home on the day of purchase, so come treat yourself & your loved ones!

This year we will be supporting The Bookery (www.thebookery.org.za). The gallery & artists will be donating 10% of all sales towards building a library & running a creative workshop with the kids at Usasazo Secondary School in Khayelitsha. Everyone is invited to donate books – specifically Xhosa & Afrikaans language, as well as Art-related books.

Please join us on Saturday the 5th of December from 11am until 3pm for our final exhibition of 2015. It is going to be a festive day of STELLAR art, sweet treats by the lovely artist/baker Alice Toich, beer by Leopold7 and so much more…

We look forward to celebrating a truly fantastic year with our artists, friends, and clients.

Warm Regards,
Monique & The Salon Ninety One Team

A SOLO EXHIBITION BY SALON NINETY ONE ARTIST KIRSTEN SIMS | 12 – 28 NOVEMBER | TORONTO, CANADA.

 

THIS IS THE PLACE

14 – 31.10.2015

A group exhibition by Andrzej Urbanski , Wesley van Eeden, Andrew Sutherland, Jade Klara, Dani Loureiro and Paul Senyol.

This group exhibition by six highly-skilled contemporary artists centred around the act and process of collaboration across diverse modes of practice. The exhibition features 4 local artists from Cape Town, including Paul Senyol, Dani Loureiro, Jade Klara, and Andrew Sutherland, as well as Durban-based artist Wesley van Eeden, and Andrzej Urbanski, a Polish-German artist who is also based in Cape Town and part of the Salon Ninety One stable. The artists come together under the theme to explore ideas around Collaboration, Place, and Presence. Viewers can expect to see works by the individual artists in their signature styles as well as exciting once-off collaborative projects ranging from painterly portraits, abstract works, layered graphic pieces, unusually shaped canvases, typography, works on paper, works on board, works on canvas, as well as works which break free from the traditional confines of image-making all with a unique local feel.

EVERYDAY EDEN

16.09  – 10.10.2015

A solo exhibition of recent paintings by Kirsten Beets.

“The starting point for Everyday Eden was the word ‘Jungle’ which led to an exploration of the ‘Urban Jungle’. I wanted to investigate the space that I inhabited, namely Cape Town. It is a city in which I live and work and it became a challenge to draw inspiration from the overly familiar sights and sounds. This forced me to look deeper at my surroundings and since Nature and the natural world has always been an inspiration, I started to wonder if there was any wilderness hiding among the everyday. Slowly I began to take note of the in-between spaces. For the first time I observed the exotic palm tree with a cityscape peeking out behind it. Everyday scenes of nature previously overlooked, uncelebrated yet beautiful in their own way. In my paintings I have tried to convey the feeling of these places, a kind of strangeness within a familiar environment. For me these spaces represent Edens or little islands of lost paradise complete with their own fauna and flora. Not all the works are from Cape Town, some were inspired by travels. In each I tried to celebrate the Everyday Edens I found along the way.”

ACT NATURALLY II

19.08 – 12.09.2015

An Exhibition of paintings by Craig Actually Smith.

Craig Smith’s paintings are the diary of an explorer, from the landscapes of popular media and strangers’ faces to the inner realm of personal memory. His works are an intuitive exploration of surface, medium, shape and colour. It is difficult to tell whether form or texture comes first in the artist’s process. For Smith, painting is a process of being lost in the moment. His intuitive, frank and direct approach to image making is central to the works’ appeal.

POLYNESIA

20.05 – 20.06.15

Following in the footsteps of two great masters Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin, this two-person exhibition of recent paintings by Paul Senyol & Cathy Layzell, explores the islands of Polynesia as its central theme. Layzell has worked predominantly in oil on canvas, while Senyol has chosen mixed media on board for this show. The artists have also created two large-scale collaborative paintings towards the exhibition. Polynesia represents a collection of abstract paintings, which depict the diversity of the central & southern pacific through unexpected perspectives, hues & brushstrokes. The paintings leave the viewer with an intense awareness of the power & unpredictability of nature and this exotic paradise.

NIGHT WATCH

18.02 – 14.03.15

Night Watch – A solo exhibition of recent paintings by Gabrielle Raaff.

Working with the ephemeral qualities of watercolour and ink, Raaff explores certain spatial conditions of figurative and architectural form within the urban realm. Her latest works see a return to oil and a more intuitive, visceral exploration of the internal landscape of the subconscious.

DOG DAYS

21.01 – 14.02.15

Solo Exhibition by Sarah Pratt

Dog Days
Vanishing into the green light

Sarah Pratt presents a body of work that is inspired by the life and death of her dog, Laptop.

The death of a loyal companion invokes feelings of pain, isolation and nostalgia.

The process of remembering seems to root us in another time and place, a timeless, intangible realm.

Intrigued by ‘The Wood Between the Worlds’ in C.S. Lewis’s ‘The Magician’s Nephew’, the artist’s work also alludes to her imagined existence of a strange, green in-between place where her deceased dog now resides.

Using pen, ink, gouache, collage, gold leaf and paper cutting techniques, she focuses on producing a series of works that are an exploration of life, death, memory and place.
