A group show by Louise Hall, Ian Calder, Terence King, Terri Broll and Heather Gourlay-Conyngham titled Five Degrees Of Realism opens at the KZNSA Gallery on March 21.
Five artists exhibit work that reflects on the work of one or more of the other exhibiting artists.
The artists are part of an ongoing peer mentoring and discussion group. Their work is related in the first instance by the orthodoxy and immediacy of communicating via marks on a canvas. Interaction between a painting’s nominal appearance and its experience by the participating viewer is, further, a key concern linking the painters’ work. The works, although founded chiefly on observation, depart to differing degrees from the specifics of the source so as to amplify the interpretive options of the subject.
A guiding motivation in assembling this exhibition is that new connections might be made through the juxtaposition of the works. To this end, each of the artists is exhibiting a work which reflects on the work of one or more of the other exhibiting artists.
Five Degrees Of Realism runs until April 9 at the KZNSA Gallery, 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit www.kznsagallery.co.za
