PRETORIA - TINA SKUKAN GALLERY

Cave Letters
visually and aesthetically satisfying Biblical scripts, e.g. The Dead Sea Scrolls, and other letters from antiquity discovered in archaeological history. The emotive content is, however, still inadvertently transmitted to the viewer.

Although he now uses two and three dimensional elements together, the main emphasis is still on Badenhorst's painterly style, layers of paint, spontaneous mark making and expressive brush strokes, all combined in expressionistic, abstract imagery. The three dimensional artefacts are used symbolically alluding to the old rolls and scripts in their original and actual appearance.

PRETORIA - PRETORIA ART MUSEUM
Blow Your Sculpture 2019 Exhibition
Participating: Blow Your Sculpture is a collaborative project to explore and introduce glass as an expressive medium by inviting artists from other media, and our small South African glass fraternity itself, to make blown glass sculptures.

In its third iteration since 2014, Blow Your Sculpture is rapidly evolving into a substantial collaborative project breaking new boundaries.

Our first project was part of the Cool Capital biennial in 2014 which exhibited the final works at Modern Art Projects (and are part of their permanent collection now).

Thereafter BYS took place in 2016, coinciding with Cool Capital. We hosted an open air exhibition at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens and thereafter at the Pretoria Art Museum.

The basic idea with BYS is to introduce non-glass artists, designers, architects and the like to the possibilities glass has to offer. Artists are invited to make a mould or have a concept to shape hot glass.

This year Blow Your Sculpture takes place at Smelt Glass Studio in Victoria Yards, Johannesburg. Smelt is one of the shining stars in South Africa's local glass community run by Martli Jansen van Rensburg and Mike Hyam.

Blow Your Sculpture's desired result is to grow the hand-made glass industry in South Africa. Through new processes and challenges, individual participants bring new ideas and concepts to the hotshop - which at times seems like a baptism of fire for both the participant as well as the skilled blowers.

Key to this is the unbiased outsider nature of the artist's concepts. Artists not familiar with glass have ideas which at times can be quite challenging, especially for the skilled blowers, yet open new avenues through problem solving on the fly.

So far every creative has brought something new to the hotshop floor. Although the basic combination of fire, sand and air to form molten glass is the same, the results speak of individual voices expressing themselves through an almost unpredictable process in an unfamiliar milieu. /default.htm > Guy du Toit, Gordon Froud, Richard Forbes, Ian Redelinghuys, Maxi Pretorius, Caitlin Greenberg, Martli Jansen van Rensburg, Mike Hyam, Peter du Toit, Charl Enslin and Lothar Bottcher *
