SALON NINETY ONE End-of-year salon-style group show in aid of True North

Accessible, affordable artwork across a broad range of mediums by some of Salon Ninety One’s favourite emerging and established creatives. This year our Gallery and Exhibiting Artists will be donating ten percent of all artwork sales to the True North Organisation. Spoil yourself or a loved one with that special one-of-a-kind artwork and make a difference to the life of someone much younger and less fortunate. True North is a non-profit organisation that is pioneering Early Childhood Development (ECD) initiatives within marginalised communities.The historical lack of adequate provisioning of basic services to poor communities manifests itself within all spheres of society, ultimately resulting in a vast loss of human potential. The long-term ripple effects of inequality includes increased rates of unemployment, disease, substance abuse and the fragmentation of family units, and unfortunately young children are the most at risk. An incredible developmental window of opportunity exists within these early years, and it rapidly diminishes with age. This potential for growth into a “whole” person is not limited to academic development, but encompasses every part of the child’s world. As we celebrate ten wonderful years of Salon Ninety One, we recognise the light, love and hard work that has gone into building the True North organisation since 2007. Join Salon91 and our generous young artists this festive season in our quest to give the Vrygrond community and the youth of our country a brighter future.

TURBINE ART FAIR 2018

12.07 – 15.07.2018

Booth Number GH13 | Turbine Hall | Johannesburg

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.

Salon Ninety One exhibited at the Turbine Art Fair at the Turbine Hall in Johannesburg, South Africa, for the fifth consecutive year. Visitors to the gallery’s booth did enjoy works by their regular Salon Ninety One TAF favourites such as Amber Moir, Andrew Sutherland, Black Koki, Bruce Mackay, Cathy Layzell, Georgina Berens, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Mareli Esterhuizen, Paul Senyol, Heidi Fourie, and Zarah Cassim, to mention only a few, as well as exciting newcomers to the fair, including Chloe Townsend, Berry Meyer, Katrine Claassens, Lili Probart, Matthew Prins, NEBNIKRO, Renée Rossouw, Sarah Pratt, Tara Deacon & more. Expect to see collage, painting, photography, ceramics, monotypes, reverse glass works, and drawings, executed in a rich winter’s palette, articulated with cool midnight hues, and bursts of warm jewel colours. The space did feature large and medium sized works by the various exhibiting artists, as well as two group projects, including a collection of diminutive works.

Renee Rossouw

Renee Rossouw is an artist, designer and architect working across many creative spheres. Her artworks are characterized by a love of geometric shapes and graphic, bold colour. Over the years she has amassed a personal library of collected and abstracted shapes and patterns. These are derived primarily from the South African urban landscape: the skylines, buildings and other urban details that catch her eye.

Her process of creating is characterised by an inventive playfulness. A childhood love of 1980s Lego sets and national flags continues to inform an imaginative composing of collected shapes and line. Her image library is stored in sketchbooks, on studio walls and in plastic boxes such that her works reflect an ongoing investigation of nature’s “language of geometries.” Each individual element in her work holds an infinite variation of meaning which unfolds in the final relationship between shape and colour.

Rossouw primarily works in mixed media. She enjoys an opportunity to make something new from something existing such as old linocut blocks which are combined with carved wooden elements, charcoal and paint. She is particularly inspired by the traditional materials of South African artists and looks to work with linocut, woodblocks and drawing charcoal in contemporary ways.

Rossouw’s practice is characterised by an exploration of the dimensions of the natural world and the particular environments of South Africa.  She is currently a lecturer at UCT’s School of Architecture. She obtained her Masters in architecture in 2009 and was selected to do a Master’s in product design at European Design Labs, Madrid. She has colaborated with IKEA (2017), participated in the Venice Biennale (2006) and won numerous awards and recognition for her design.

Selected Exhibitions and awards: 2018 – ‘Skrif’ at Woordfes, Stellenbosch; ‘Geon’ at World Art Gallery, Cape Town. 2017 – ‘Hour Work’ at Voorkamer Gallery; ‘Abstract’ at Younglood Gallery; ‘Folly’ at Smithstudio, Cape Town. 2016 – ‘Simboliek’ (solo) at Voorkamer Gallery; ‘Sketch’ at Smithstudio, Cape Town; ‘Between Stars and Tracks’ at The Project Room, Namibia. 2015 – ‘Two’ at Smithstudio, Cape Town; OppikoppiMusic Festival’s Resident Artist of the Year; Best Product Design2015 for 100% Design South Africa Awards. 2014 – “Stackable Storage Tower” nominated for MBOISA award for Most Beautiful Object in South Africa. 2013 – “In Good Company” at the Irma Stern Museum, curated by Michael Chandler. 2012 – Selected as one of Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africansto watch; IN&OUT exhibition, Moscow Design Week.2011 – Just Mad Art Fair, Madrid; Winner of the DFA My Town Short Film & Documentary Competition.2008 – ‘The Peepshow,’ Emerging Creative at Cape Town Design Indaba.
