COLLECTIVE DELUSION Artists: Ley Mboramwe Loyiso Mkize Mia Darling Theko Boshomane Amy Lindeque The winter has arrived once more.

Twenty-five years have now come and passed since the first election of democratic South Africa in 1994 and we

Loyiso Mkize – EXDS

2019-03-26T16:31:19+02:00

Loyiso's current exhibition at Eclectica Contemporary has come at a time in the artist’s life when his own mortality has been mirrored and etched by very close personal experiences. This has automatically created a deep impulse to reflect philosophically and spiritually on the nature of reality, and more profoundly, his flux between emotional challenges and his attempt at rationalizing what it

Jenna Wessels: I’m not afraid of the dark

2019-01-29T15:28:01+02:00

Exploring contrasting tensions and liminal spaces with interest in notions of the ‘authentic self’, the necessity for disillusion in order for transformation and processes pertaining to the acceptance of the shadow, the work goes on a journey of deconstruction and reintegration.Fragments of canvas sewn and pinned together play with the layering and revealing of varying explorations of repetitive mark making. This seeks

She describes her creative process as a form of intuitive auto-pilot wherein she allows images, textures and ideas from her imagination and subconscious to flow into works which have a dense doodle-like quality. Her work is partly inspired by the onslaught of

KWAAI: group exhibition

2019-04-04T13:54:57+02:00

AN EXHIBITION ON COLOURED IDENTITY “Contrary to what Shakespeare's Juliet famously opined —‘What's in a name? That which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet’ — I believe that names and labels do matter, especially when it comes to the politics of identity and how we perceive (or, perhaps more tellingly, are made to perceive) ourselves.
