"Anatomy of the Un-seen" by Grace Kotze 6 - 25 June 2011
The “Anatomy of the Un-seen” is an exploration into the notion that the unseen can manifest in the physical. The internal “soul” of a person never goes un-seen, posture, muscle development, voice tenure, expression in the eyes etc. are some of the physical traits that describe the un-seen. This notion strongly resides in the portrait, bewitching in its potential to hold emotion.
The exhibition showcases a selection of faces that provided Kotze with strong clues into the un-seen. More specifically, they were faces that held true to her emotional state at the time of producing the works.
