14 – 17.07.2016
The Turbine Art Fair has become an important event on the SA Arts Calendar, presenting rare and crucial opportunities to collectors and artists alike. This Fair remains true to its intention to promote emerging talent as well as to nurture a new collectors base, resonating with the core philosophy of Salon Ninety One. Since its inception in 2008, Salon Ninety One has served as a platform for both emerging and established South African artists of all disciplines to gain exposure through sharing their creativity and vision. This year Salon Ninety One will be exhibiting at the Turbine Art Fair, booth GH14, for the third consecutive year to bring accessible, affordable contemporary art from Cape Town to both seasoned collectors and first-time buyers.
The artists exhibiting with Salon Ninety One have all excelled in their respective fields, with their names quickly gaining recognition across South Africa and abroad. Artists who embody the gallery’s signature style and the astounding growth and promise of local talent. The gallery will be representing the following artists at the fair: Andrew Sutherland, Andrzej Urbanski, Cathy Layzell, Heidi Fourie, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Linsey Levendall, Paul Senyol, Tahiti Pehrson and Unathi Mkonto. Visitors to the Salon Ninety One booth can expect to see a diverse, and visually rich collection of illustration and painting ranging from abstract landscapes and geometric shapes to detailed portraiture, as well as selected sculptural works.
Salon Ninety One aims to delight audiences by subtly introducing the outdoors to the gallery space, with a carefully curated group of artists, each making a refreshing contribution to their discipline. Traces of street art are evident in Senyol’s colourful canvases and Levendall’s portraits, while Mkonto’s mechanical shapes, Pehrson’s geometric hand-cut paper works and Urbanski’s digital formalism recall elements of architecture. The abstract landscapes of Sutherland, Layzell and Fourie, alongside the natural environments depicted by Beets’ enchanting greenhouses and beach scenes and Sims’ whimsical garden parties further transport the viewer.
The Turbine Art Fair will be on view at the Turbine Hall in Newtown, Johannesburg between 14-17 July 2016.
