StateoftheART Gallery on 50 Buitenkant Street in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD is coming to life in the abstract*d style.
In an artist-run exhibition curated by Tanja Truscott, it presents the work of Balekane Legoabe, Odette Marais, Karla Nixon, Tanja Truscott and Shui-Lyn White. Five artists who explore far beyond the physical reality to express that which can’t always be explained in words, giving us time to reflect and look beyond the surface.
In the run-up to the exhibition, they were in visual conversation with one another and ‘spoke’ to each other – in images. These were conversations without words about line, colour, texture, shape and light. Sometimes the conversation was direct, at other times quirky with humorous lateral jumps, but it always spoke about how they saw the world around them.
As Shui Lyn wrote:
“I found myself gazing at the visual exchanges, wondering at the shapes, the colours, the light, the angles…Watching the bounce of one image alongside another … from the real into the digital and back into the real again but this time on paper or canvas.”
