NEW FORMS: A STUDY OF BROKEN PARALLELS Solo Exhibition by Bevan de Wet
In previous work, De Wet had engaged with notions of displacement and belonging through depictions of the body. By focusing on the skins` surface as a boundary, it could be mapped, patterned and deconstructed. Currently, he is exploring the body as a concept of space, exploring both land and water as bodies in themselves.
The exhibited drawings, prints, paintings and collages represent a process of unearthing identity and exploring its evolution. By working with a combination of structure and chance, the work allows for a vulnerable space that is both evocative and indefinite.
