rhodes 4th year fine art exhibition (part2)

these are some of the pictures i took at the fine art exhibition last year. i chose not to post them all out of respect to the artists, you can see more by clicking on the links below. enjoy!

suvania naidoo

suvania's exhibition of work was called ZA/in. it is about her identity as a south african indian female living in a westernised, post-colonial time and explores the duality of being both indian and south african at the same time. all of her peices are made by suvania. just amazing.


denys dixie

denys exhibition was inspired by carl jung's dream theory and the idea of the subconcious mind. in these panels, the characters are replicated selves, performing inexplicable activities in an unadored space. the lack of narrative sequence is deliberate as the figures appear to be in a moment of dream-like lucidity. each of these panels is handpainted by denys and they were metres long! the detail is unbelievable, to the extent that  you could see every hair on her arm, eyebrows and eyelashes. undescribable.


minke wasserman
this was probably one of the coolest exhibition i saw. the location was perfect, a round concrete room in the depths of the monument. there is definately a sense of discomfort because of all the conflicting beliefs, thoughts or emotions. i just thought this was spectacular.
