Audrey Rudnick 5 - 17 November
An exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Audrey Rudnick
Never before have we had to face so many choices in life; how we respond to situations, what attitudes we adopt, whether we choose the good, the bad or the questionable. As an artist I believe that every time I stand before an empty canvas I have a choice to make as I believe that visually no matter what the subject, my heart dictates. My latest work is a visual journey of technical experiments, excitement, joy, beauty and a reflection of what I feel from my heart.
Well known artist and sculptress, Audrey Rudnick, was born in Durban and educated in Zambia, Durban and later attended the Johannesburg School of Art, Ballet, Drama and Music. Audrey always knew she wanted to be an artist and her undeniable talent was noticed from an early age. After school, Audrey travelled through Europe for six years, painting and sketching. She also spent some time in Sri Lanka designing and making batiks, but it was while she was spending time in Paris that she was inspired to sculpt and then to combine the mediums of painting and sculpture. Audrey's unique design of the "pod people" reached a selective audience and has since created a strong following. Audrey's portfolio consists out of a violinist, flutist and several ethnic women - the Masai, Zulu, Xhosa and Ndebele. This unique piece of art is created from resin and wood, and flows into a palm pod to round off this very elegant looking sculpture.
Exhibition runs through Saturday, 17 November at 2p.m.
