Salon Ninety One is a Cape Town based gallery, presenting works by emerging and established contemporary artists of all disciplines, passionate about developing a new brand of local talent. The gallery specializes in accessible contemporary South African Art, Design and illustration. Founded during 2008 by Monique du Preez, (Married name, Foord), curator and director to the space and its highly energized exhibition program. The gallery presented a selection of contemporary work ranging from painting, textile, print, drawing, and to a smaller degree photography and sculpture, with a special emphasis on collaborative projects and bridging the traditional divide between disciplines. Salon91 offered international and local collectors, as well as first-time buyers unique investment opportunities into the emerging South African art market.

Catherine Holtzhausen

Catherine Holtzhausen is a collage artist and illustrator whose mixed media works embody a humorous and nurturing approach to the world. Her lively figures celebrate a bountiful existence crafted from hand painted paper and prints. Her work initially evolved from the off-cuts of other artworks but has since become a mature and vibrant practice incorporating the textures achieved by watercolour painting, oil-based monotype and collagraph printing methods.

THATSCRAP is Holtzhausen’s first large scale and long-term artistic project and is made up of works produced daily during a time of extreme illness. The work chronicles her attempts to direct, catalog and reflect upon the influences of class, gender and economy on her life as a young female artist. She has also explored other forms of expression from film photography to collaging with imagery found in vintage national geographic magazines.

Holtzhausen’s works stand as a confident challenge to social constructs, particularly the media-molded inner voice of women telling themselves that they are less. Each of Holtzhausen’s pieces honours a humanist moment of joy or playfulness. Celebrations of the female form in all its varieties as well as joyful motifs of healthy, life affirming activities like gardening, swimming and dancing strive to remind the viewer that they are worthy and wonderful.
