Darkness Rising – group exhibition

2019-12-12T13:49:17+02:00

The possibility of understanding, of cultures, societies, communities and places, rises from the framework and perspective from which we begin. The possibility of recontextualisation or reinterpretation is made wholly more exciting when this reconsideration can be guided by first-hand, self-reflexive or introspective work - whether that comes from an individual or communal interaction. Darkness Rising is such an opportunity - to

Round the cliff on a sudden came the sea, And the sun looked over the Mountain’s rim: And straight was a path of gold for him, And the need of a world of men for me. ~ Parting at Morning, Robert Browning (1812–1889) Bodies are used and loved, admired and exploited, pressured and cherished. Bodies are political, imbued with power and

“As a Sudanese, my past and present are marred with memories of loss, isolation, migration, exile, and forgotten heritage,” Salim explains. His paintings are a physical manifestation of a dialogue between different cultures. Behind his work lies a strong feeling that art is not merely something to look at, but also a tool that should be used to help facilitate this

Loyiso Mkize – EXDS

2019-10-16T11:47:31+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.

Aimee Lindeque Aimee Lindeque’s art can be concisely summarised as intricate and imaginative works created in an eclectic style. 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
