Your hard work and generosity has enabled us to raise R49500 in the name of the Peninsula School Feeding Association. The funds raised from Trees Make Forests will enable the PSFA to provide 110 learners affected by poverty that attend Stormont Madubela Primary in Nyanga, with two daily nutritious meals for an entire year! This goes to show that we can all come together to make a difference like trees becoming a forest.

TREES MAKE FORESTS

02.12.2017 – 20.01.2018

SALON NINETY ONE end-of-year group show in aid of the Peninsula School Feeding Association | Saturday 02 December at 11AM | 91 Kloof Street, Gardens, Cape Town

This year, 10% of all sales will go towards the Peninsula School Feeding Association and the many children they support.

Hungry children struggle to concentrate and the deficits of under-nutrition becomes irreversible if not addressed. The Peninsula School Feeding Association provides breakfasts and lunches to 27 270 hungry learners at a total of 160 educational institutions across the Western Cape. These meals provide regular balanced nutrition across all food groups as well as incentive to attend school and to help children focus on their studies. For more information, please visit their website.

Amber Moir

Amber Moir is an artist whose images defy any particular figuration but evoke the hauntingly familiar. She sees her process as one of engaging with a lack of control such that the lost mark or unexpected result is celebrated in the final work.

Moir’s subjects are drawn from her experiences travelling or, more recently, her two years teaching English in a Japanese Prefectural High School. Recollections of events, conversations or impressions of a scene are painted in watercolour on a monotype plate before being printed by pitch roller. Far from the control of the print studio and etching press, the pitch roller affords Moir a direct confrontation with a force larger than herself.

In printing with this process, Moir grapples with a technical challenge that demands a lot of physical labour. The labour of her process remains invisible in the final works that speak of ethereal elegance. Not all the intended marks translate into the final work and not all the prints are a success. For Moir, there is a sense of acceptance in the outcome as she persistently makes peace with entropy. The sacrificial investment of both labour and mark making invites a reading of invisible labour and the openness to chance in the creative act.

Moir graduated from the University of Stellenbosch with a degree in Fine Arts in 2014. Since her return from Kyushu Island, Japan, she has lived and worked in Cape Town.
