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.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Andrew Sutherland’s latest body of work has been created almost entirely by referencing his growing collection of archival photographs, postcards and memorabilia.

The idea behind extracting elements found within these references has been to create new stories from old worlds. This “Other Dust” shows us the interesting history and practices of documented cultures and civilizations from around the world.

Andrew started marveling over old imagery and memorabilia many years ago but has only recently started to bring these references to light. As well as being a great source of days gone by, these images also offer a tactile, used or handled feeling that emits great warmth. These decaying references are slowly dissolving and will eventually return to the earth as dust, just like everything else. As we look to the future and grow, our past is quickly vanishing, as new history replaces the old.

Other Dust is a tribute to the old world and all its wonders. It admires adventure and discovery and exposes strange traditions and values.

All the works on display were made in Taiwan, where Sutherland has been living and traveling for the last 1-½ years. His exposure to Eastern culture has certainly played a part in the development in this series. His exposure to different ways of living and practices has helped shape this body of work.

 

GRAVITY – A visual exploration

GRAVITY – A VISUAL EXPLORATION

Dani Loureiro, Cassandra Leigh Johnson, Tess Metcalf, Nina Torr, Mariëtte Bergh, and Maaike Bakker, together with Salon91, present an all-female illustration & multidisciplinary exhibition themed around the idea of ‘Gravity’, a natural phenomenon few have managed to escape. Playing on the idea of opposing gravity, defying it, and also being fascinated by it, the group intends to explore the polarities of destruction, inversion, and attraction. Utilizing a broad range of materials, ‘Gravity’ will be interpreted and expressed in ways unimagined up until now…

AWAY

29.01 – 22.02.2014

Artist: Sarah Pratt

Born in Zimbabwe in 1972, Sarah Pratt holds a Master of Fine Arts degree. She is a highly skilled printmaker, specializing in copper etching, linocut, collograph and monoprint. After spending 10 years in the print department of Michaelis as a part-time staff member , Sarah decided to devote most of her time to making her own work. She is an extremely prolific artist, constantly creating, and participating in a number of exhibitions. Sarah works from a group studio in Observatory, where she is currently interested in ink and gouache on paper, paper cut-out work, monoprints and drypoints.

29 January – 22 February 2014

Opening Night Wednesday 29 January 2014 at 18h30. The exhibition concludes Sat 22/2/2014 at 2pm.

About Away:

Toward or into non-existence. While travelling from Cape Town to Dubai, Manchester to Wales, London to Singapore, and finally New Zealand back to Cape Town, Sarah Pratt presents a body of work both inspired and dictated by a ‘Journey’. ‘Away’ invokes feelings of being apart, elsewhere, afar and astray. Travel exposes us to other worlds that, despite our scheduled timeline, seem to exist in a timeless realm. While moving in a systematic manner from point to point, Sarah Pratt harnesses her travel experiences, both physical and psychological, to inform the nature of these works. Using pen, ink and gouache, she focuses on producing a series of works that are an exploration of other-worldliness, works that illustrate another place and are created in unfamiliar environment

Solo Exhibition – Nelson Makamo.

INTERMIXED WITH MY REALITIES AND FEELINGS

Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection proudly presents Intermixed with my realities and feelings, a solo exhibition by Johannesburg-based young rising talent and investment artist, Nelson Makamo, a highly skilled painter, printmaker and draughtsman. The exhibition will feature a combination of oil painting, watercolour, silkscreen & monotype print, charcoal as well as pen and ink drawings varying from dramatic monochrome to richly emotive coloured works. Key themes informing Makamo’s practice include the city of Johannesburg with its dizzying dynamism, portraiture, the narrative of the artist’s personal history – an unpolitical archive of personal experience, as well as themes of migration, urbanization, idenity, masquerade and the transition from childhood to adulthood. Makamo ultimately strives to communicate a universal experience, which viewers can relate to and access through his artwork.

Nelson Makamo, was born in 1982, in the small town of Nylstroom (now Modimolle), Limpopo province. Makamo moved to Johannesburg to join the Artist Proof Studio in January 2003 where he studied for three years and worked for another two years at the gallery and as curator. During 2005 he was awarded a bursary from Johnson and Johnson and the Pinpointone Human Resources Scholarship. The artist has exhibited in an impressive number of group and solo exhibitions in South Africa, France, Italy, America, The Netherlands and Scotland. His first solo exhibition, Walk with Me, was held at the Obert Contemporary Gallery in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg. During 2006 Makamo exhibited alongside some of South Africa’s most established artists such as David Koloane, Colbert Mashile, Deborah Bell and William Kentridge in a group exhibition titled Ten Years of Printmaking: David Krut Print Studio. Nelson participated in a group exhibition at Salon91 in Cape Town, titled Figuring Difference during 2012, curated by Andrew Lamprecht. Makamo’s art is housed in the corporate collections of Standard Chartered, Telkom, City of Johannesburg, Unisa, Matasis Investment Holdings and Obert Gallery. Private local investors, as well as famous international personalities, such as fashion mogul Georgio Armani and musician Annie Lenox, also form part of his collectors. Some recent achievements include being named Art South Africa’s Seventh Bright Young Thing and winning the Klipdrift Gold Artists Award, as well as participating in the Venice Biennale. Makamo currently works as a fulltime artist from his studio in The City of Gold.

A VACANT PASSAGE

21.09 – 12.10.2013

a-vacant-passage_evite1_web

 

Two Person Exhibition – Andrzej Urbanski & Paul Senyol.

There is a beautiful synergy that exists between Paul Senyol & Andrzej Urbanski’s paintings. A VACANT PASSAGE is the story of two artists traveling and leaving behind remnants and legacies, told and expressed through powerful & uniquely abstracted artworks. Andrzej Urbanski [Pol/Ger] and Paul Senyol [Zar] first met during Urbanski’s residency in Cape Town in June of 2012. Soon they began to discover the many similarities, which exist across their individual artistic practices and approaches, even though the execution of their work differs radically.

 A VACANT PASSAGE presents an all-new body of work from Urbanski and Senyol respectively, as well as some collaborative pieces, all of which relate to their history and the common happenings of the years when both artists’ families experienced the repercussions of The Second World War. The works on exhibition reference a time and a place, which no longer exist. Both artists having experienced this particular location in a different context, come together to seek out and construct a narrative from the puzzle pieces of a past, which neither has any actual recollection of, other than a shoebox filled with photos, newspaper clippings, essays as well as stories handed down from generation to generation. To the artists, Germany is a vacant place, Poland is a vacant place, and some day, South Africa too might become a vacant place.

While the subject matter may seem very specific, the works carry a truly universal message. The exhibition will feature a unique AUGMENTED REALITY aspect, which will further enhance the level of accessibility, as well as the viewer’s experience of the exhibition by means of user-friendly computer software & technologies. Visitors will be able to download the software to devices such as Smartphones & Ipads to enjoy an enhanced experience, which will offer further insight into the artists, their stories and the works on show. The exhibition flyer, the shopfront and the artworks will be layered with interactive digital content. Viewers can expect to see medium to large-scale paintings varying from monochrome black and white, to beautiful hues of colour on paper and on canvas, as well as a number of collaborative works.

ANDRZEJ URBANSKI | ARTISTS PROFILE

Andrzej Urbanski (Born 1983) is a German visual artist of Polish ancestry, currently residing in Cape Town. Andrzej’s early artistic background has developed and evolved over the course of 16 years spent painting, creating sculptures, being involved in several art projects, exhibitions and teaching positions around the globe. The artist holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts, attained during 2012 from the EAE (European Art Ensemble) at the ECAL (University of Art & Design) in Lausanne, Switzerland and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design/Graphic Design from BTK-FH in Berlin since 2010. In June of 2012 Andrzej completed a residency at /A WORD OF ART as a part of his studies. The mandate for the EAE program states that students must engage in dialogue with foreign scholars and institutions, holding at its core the need for interpersonal connection and foreign travel to gather experience and exchange ideas between art professionals, educators, and students. Aside from his finished thesis research, Andrzej is interested in exploring the process of creating work in different social environments around the globe, drawing influence and inspiration from architecture, landscape, photography, design elements and media/advertising & of course from the other artists he encounters on his journey. His main artistic focus is on human social behaviour and learned or innate reactions to varying shapes and colours.

PAUL SENYOL | ARTISTS PROFILE

Paul Senyol was born on the 25th of October 1980 in Cape Town, South Africa. Paul has been drawing and painting since his early high school years, however never pursuing any form of artistic or graphic training. At age sixteen, he discovered the freedom of skateboarding and punk rock music in the beautiful suburb of Welgemoed, where he grew up. This naturally became a key influence in his early drawings, sketches and paintings, while skateboard graphics, album covers, magazine layouts and illustrations played a role in developing his aesthetic eye. Around the same time, he also became exposed to the creativity of graffiti and street artists such as Marc Gonzales, Ed Templeton, and Barry McGee – all of this forming part of his early art education. A few years later Paul was introduced to and moved by the creative thought and artistic genius of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Cy Twombly respectively. Senyol’s lack of formal training and schooling has given him the freedom to break away from traditional notions of painting, to explore genres and styles, and to meld mediums, allowing him a creative freedom that flows so evidently through his work. Senyol’s art lingers gracefully and intentionally between beauty and honesty and brings a surreal, yet abstract world into being. His current work focuses heavily on narrative, shape, line, form, composition, colour & texture. Each faint line, bold brushstroke and shape is carefully composed to breathe life into its environment, reflecting something of light, serenity, experience and thought. His finished work seeks to engage the viewer through translating his own experiences to canvas, allowing an open discussion and translation of his work. Senyol has exhibited extensively throughout South Africa and abroad. This year Paul has been nominated as a finalist to the Absa Atelier Competition 2013. He currently works from a studio in Woodstock, Cape Town.

HONEYMOON

24.04 – 18.05.2013

honeymoon-pic-for-web

A solo show of drawings and paintings by Katrin Coetzer.

Honeymoon marks a personal current period in artist Katrin Coetzer’s life, where she is forging a connection between her inner world and the geographical spaces she visits – real, imaginary and remembered. Honeymoon further references a waning sweetness and suggests the meeting point of fantasy, place and memory. The content of this body of work is centered around themes of spatial exploration, & exotic vs local seen through the lenses of feeling and itinerary…

 

 

Katrin Coetzer was born in Cape Town, South Africa. She completed her BA in Visual Communication at Stellenbosch University in 2007 and a BPhil in Visual Art majoring in Illustration in 2012 at the same institution. During 2006 the artist was selected as a finalist in the Timo Smuts competition, at the US Gallery in Stellenbosch. Katrin has worked as a freelance designer and illustrator since 2008 and has exhibited her work in galleries both nationally and internationally. Selected group exhibitions in which the artist has participated, include, Fin, Stellenbosch University Graduate Exhibition (2007); Greatest Hits at the Association of Visual Arts, Cape Town 2008; Verf group show, Blank Projects Gallery, Cape Town 2008; Ontopoftheworld, group show Cape Town Stadium (June 2009); If you let yourself love a wild thing, group show at Salon 91, Cape Town (2011); Draft, group exhibition of selected Masters work, US gallery, Stellenbosch (2011); Safe Spaces group exhibition & campaign auction, Freeworld Design Centre, Cape Town (2011); Handbound, group exhibition coordinated by Prof Keith Dietrich, Sasol Gallery, Stellenbosch (2011); Winter Wonderland, group show at Salon 91, Cape Town (2011); Swatch Illustrative Berlin, selected in category Book Design, highly commended, Berlin (2011); & Paper is You, group show at Salon91 Cape Town (2011).

During 2012 the artist exhibited her work at the Design Indaba Expo as part of the CCIBA/Stellenbosch University bookstand. The artist was also one of two South African artists selected to exhibit at the Illustrators Exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy.
