A solo exhibition of paintings & illustrations by Andrew Sutherland.
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.
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…
Mia Chaplin was born in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, in 1990. After matriculating she moved to Cape Town to study at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, where she graduated with a BA in Fine Art in 2011. Mia works predominantly in oil on canvas and oil on paper. Mia’s works are highly expressive and characterised by muted tones, visible brushstrokes and a rich application of oils. Landscapes and portrait studies form her main subject matter. The artist has participated in a number of group shows since graduating, and exhibited her paintings with Salon91 at the first Cape Town art fair during 2013. She is currently based as a painter in Cape Town and is working from her studio in town.
