A homage in drawing, painting and collage to David Attenborough at 91
A solo exhibition by Katrin Coetzer
With warmth and charm the British broadcaster and naturalist introduced generations to the wonders of the natural world. This collection of images is a visual response of gratitude to his work and the mystery and richness he has given us access to via the TV screen. Attenborough has laid bare the extraordinariness of our planet and continues to do so with great whispered enthusiasm. His fascination precedes our own and this makes him a most compelling muse.
In this deeply uncomfortable extended moment in which it seems humanity is surely headed for ecological armageddon it should follow that our perception of the natural world as an unlimited untouched wilderness must change and be replaced with an understanding that acknowledges its vulnerability and our critical role in it. The natural world as subject matter takes on new meaning in the modern context. The predictable nostalgia and romanticism of landscape imagery now too represents the idea of creeping loss.

Group Show – Various Media – Emerging Artists – Salon91
Artists have been challenged by the gallery to create anew / submit a masterpiece that they believe to be a truly once-off original, successful, archetypal example of their practice, which answers to the theme and title phrase ‘One in a Million’. Each artist will only submit one piece. The artists have really let their imaginations run wild with interpretations ranging from ideas around authenticity, rarity, preciousness, love, the night sky, fleeting moments, intricacy, endangered species, statistics & formulas, to the use of sparkly materials / precious metals within their work. Viewers will be presented with what could essentially be a one-in-a-million opportunity to collect a seminal work by an emerging artist.
The exhibition will open on the 26th of June at 18h30.
‘One in a Million’ will feature one work per artist.
Expect to see sculpture, painting, drawing, typography, digitally created works & more …Not to be missed!

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.
