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.

Tara Deacon

Tara Deacon is an illustrator inspired by the overlooked moments in daily life and the colour of life under a South African sun. She grew up in Pretoria and studied product design in Johannesburg but currently lives and works in Berlin. Adventure and being in love are the reason for her living in Berlin where she has been able to work in the materials she adores: paper, paint and brush marks.

Deacon’s work is guided by her love of vibrant colour. She favours gouache as a medium because she can achieve both solid planes of colour and transparency. Her forms are simplified in order to allow the colour planes to read off one another in the manner of Fauvist paintings. She describes her colour choices as giving ‘voice’ to one another.

Living in Berlin affords Deacon a nostalgic mix of memory, place and daily life reflections in her works. Their themes are still informed by the country of her birth, her images populated by the fruits, plants, characters and light of her homeland. She has been painting since childhood and describes art making as a healing act, her solace in living a positive life adventure.

Deacon currently works on editorial and commercial illustration projects in London, South Africa and Germany. Her clients include Scoop Mag, Papier Magazine, Ogilvy, Nescafe , Wet the Label & La Lucha.
