PRETORIA - TINA SKUKAN GALLERY
Opening: Sunday 21 October 2018 at 11:30
KISS-ME-QUICK-AND-GO-MY-HONEY (and other stories)
Participating:
With KISS-ME-QUICK-AND-GO-MY-HONEY (and other stories), the nine illustrators hope to be personal, individual, witty, intelligent and original. Their work is diverse and reflect their diverse backgrounds and fields of interest and expertise: picture books, editorial illustration, academic teaching, graphic design, print making and painting. In addition to their own ‘other stories,’ each responded to the title KISS-ME-QUICK-AND-GO-MY-HONEY with pictures of loss, love, longing, nonsense and suspense – thereby showing that meaning is never fixed, but always in the process of being created through the artist’s (and the viewer’s!) consideration of different contexts.
 
The New York-based critical writer on design, Veronique Vienne, is likely to have coined the term authorial illustration in the mid-nineties. It has been used in the USA and UK to describe work in which the illustrator’s signature or voice is evident in the work. It could refer to published narrative illustration, but also to individual art works aimed at gallery exhibitions or merchandise such as stationary or clothing. Even though illustrators are proudly and consciously claiming to work as communicators in an ‘industry’, the days are long gone that they are expected to remain faceless in the background of an advertising project or stay clear of gallery walls.

PRETORIA - LONGSTREET ART LOVERS 1932
Opening: Thursday 25 October 2018 at 18:30
Two Solo Exhibitions
 
Cryselda Venter’s artworks are the results of investigations of chiaroscuro, applied to images, structures and objects juxtaposed in landscape settings, and as a frequent traveller, the localities, architecture and decorative patterns of a variety of countries are themes of inspiration. Venter often portrays light with sunlit objects and their shadows, through reflective elements, and the narrative and decorative element is ever-present. She combines structures, pattern, landscapes, man-made and natural objects in her work where organic forms, chandeliers, cats and landscapes share her canvas.
 
In her graphic work Venter investigates a variety of printing processes, etching, linocut, collography, tuilegraphy (prints made from vinyl tiles), monoprint and serigraphy. The saturated colour from serigraphy and the monochromatic aspect of compressed charcoal both part of her work. Handcolouring her etchings and a keen creator of handmade jewellery, Venter reiterates her intense love for light, for bright and bold colour.
 
Consciousness of Water by Jane Knight
 
Capturing an elusive moment that is seen or imagined is my aim. Since water is the common thread of life, I am inspired to translate its omnipresence in everything. I see how water has carved mountains; it flows in varied lines to meet the oceans. On its way, it feeds the earth and pools to create great reflecting mirrors. Every tiny texture, a leaf, a petal and human skin, all carry the presence of water. Above us the clouds float full of water. If we are lucky, there is time to play with water and this is fun! On rainy days, the world bleeds an out-of-focus flow of colour and we are moved to cry our own water - tears.

PRETORIA - ASSOCIATION OF ARTS PRETORIA
Opening: Friday 26 October 2018 at 18:30
The Journey
 
“My work is influenced by my background and current events that transpire around me. Working with clay plays a large role in my creative practice,” the artist says about this exhibition. “My artworks originate from my thoughts around these ideas and essentially are a celebration of women and a commentary on other social issues.”
 
Mtimkulu’s work is also inspired by biblical text and cultural beliefs about death and the concept of the soul leaving the body. This is seen as freedom and liberation of the soul, free from worldly events and responsibilities. Death is seen as another part of life, a dimension where the spirit lives without the body.
