DOG DAYS

21.01 – 14.02.15

Solo Exhibition by Sarah Pratt

Dog Days
Vanishing into the green light

Sarah Pratt presents a body of work that is inspired by the life and death of her dog, Laptop.

The death of a loyal companion invokes feelings of pain, isolation and nostalgia.

The process of remembering seems to root us in another time and place, a timeless, intangible realm.

Intrigued by ‘The Wood Between the Worlds’ in C.S. Lewis’s ‘The Magician’s Nephew’, the artist’s work also alludes to her imagined existence of a strange, green in-between place where her deceased dog now resides.

Using pen, ink, gouache, collage, gold leaf and paper cutting techniques, she focuses on producing a series of works that are an exploration of life, death, memory and place.

ARTTIMES BANNER_the witching hour.indd

 

Two Person Exhibition – Candice Ježek & Jade Klara.

The Witching Hour is an exploration of the magical and secret spaces of the world. Artists Candice Ježek and Jade Klara use a whimsical and powerfully feminine style to create rich narratives of unexpected yet somehow familiar themes. Expressed through various mediums of painting, sculpture, and print, they aim to move the viewer to a place of both sweetness and sorrow. The witching hour is a visually stimulating, diverse and powerful showing of the reflections of these two artists’ lives.

The Show will open on WEDNESDAY EVENING 16 October 2013 at 18h30.

HEART OF GOLD

27.03 – 20.04.2013

HeartOfGoldFlyer

 

A two-man show by Jordan Metcalf and Daniel Ting Chong.
‘Heart of Gold’ is a playful exploration of the concepts of money, consumerism and greed, featuring the highly sought-after works of award-winning Cape Town-based graphic artists, Jordan Metcalf and Daniel Ting Chong. Following on the form of their previous collaborative project ‘Fear.Less’, the artists have played with scale and medium to re-contextualise consumer-based iconography and lexicon as art. The pieces are stark, sleek, witty and graphic, using limited colour palettes and diverse mediums such as glass, paper, wood and ceramic.

Daniel Ting Chong is an illustrator, designer and artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. Daniel was born in 1987 in Cape Town. The artist studied graphic design at Vega in Cape Town. He is emerging as one of Cape Town’s top creative talents following a series of art exhibitions, talks, commissions from clients and design collaborations with leading international brands including Nike, New York Times and the Discovery Channel. Daniel has been featured in Computer Arts Projects, Photoshop Advanced, NotCot, Grafik Magazine and One Small Seed. Daniel has been invited as guest speaker to prestigious events such as the Design Indaba traveling conference ‘Design Indabar’ (Cape Town), Pecha Kucha at Design Indaba 2011 (Cape Town), Cape Town Entrepreneur Week 2011 (Cape Town), Thirteen Hours 2011 (Cape Town), TEDx 2012 (Johannesburg). Selected awards to date include Blank Page Exhibition Winner, Semi Finalist Adobe Awards California (Illustration), Semi Finalist Adobe Awards New York (Illustration), Sappi Paper Think Award, Gold Loerie Award – MK Bruce Lee Magazine 3, Top 200 Young South African’s Mail & Guardian, Silver Eagle Award – Wordsworth Books (Only Today Studio). Daniel will be collaborating with Jordan Metcalf in ‘Heart of Gold’, an exhibition which will run at Salon91 from the 27th of March 2013 until the 20th of April.

Jordan Metcalf is a Cape Town based graphic designer and artist. As well as doing commercial work for international clients like the New York Times and Nike, he has exhibited personal graphic and analogue artwork in exhibitions both locally and internationally; most recently as part of an group show curated by Pictoplasma at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, and the Pictoplasma festival in Berlin. Jordan will be collaborating with Daniel Ting Chong in ‘Heart of Gold’, an exhibition which will run at Salon91 from the 27th of March 2013 until the 20th of April.

As passionate Ocean lovers, I AM WATER, founded by champion freediver Hanli Prinsloo, strives to share the joy aquatic with as wide an audience as possible.
