What is special about this exhibition over our others is that when you purchase the artwork(s): you pay and then you can take!!  This encourages people to buy during this show for themselves, family and friends!!

“Transformation” 26 - 1 December 2016

Artists’ Statement:

As a group of Durban University of Technology (DUT) Fine Art students we began the year with a series of experimentations and explorations and with different materials and expressive depiction of issues which affects us. The collection of work looks at: identity informed by life experiences, human condition informed by emotionality, fragility and ephemerality of life and socio-political issues informed by the #FEESMUSTFALL saga. The interest in non-traditional media is very evident on the selected artworks.

Participating DUT Fine Art students are:
Minenhle Buthelezi
Andy Dlamini
Sithembiso Dube
Bongumusa Shezi

“Faces of Durban” by Janine Jollands 19 November - 1 December 2016

An exhibition of oil painting portraits



Artist’s Statement:


This portrait series draws inspiration from the faces of Durban and the cosmopolitan nature of my city. As a proud and passionate child of Africa, I find beauty in the diversity of her people and the vibrancy of her landscapes.

  

My work is less figurative and more abstract, using colour and mark-making to convey the energy, spirit and character of each individual. From the Durban surfer dude to the Afro's enthusiast to the sassy Clicks cashier, these portraits hope to encapsulate the vigour and life of this compelling city I call home.

“Sky, Sea and City” by Megan Bonnetard 12 - 24 November 2016








Artist Statement:



Landscape is a genre through which I explore different processes in paint and mixed media.  It offers a subject matter through which an emotional gravity is introduced due to my emotional connection with the surrounds. The technical application of the different media inform each other, leading me to express the same scene several times as the subject matter becomes secondary to the process.
