"Matthew Hindley: Surrender"
2004-08-11 until 2004-09-03
Bell-Roberts Art Gallery
Cape Town, , ZA South Africa

This exhibition of new works by Matthew Hindley entitled ‘Surrender’ opens Wednesday the 11th of August at Bell-Roberts Gallery in Cape Town. The exhibition will run until the 3rd of September 2004. In an excerpt taken from a review of Hindley's work by Tracy Murinik for the book  "10 Years 100 Artists" , Murinik says: “His production... is represented by a gradually growing domain of two-dimensional drawings and paintings: their mood other-worldly, their subject matter often dark and alienated, as they inscribe sombre reflections on an apparently abandoned, traumatised universe."

"Informed by media reportage, individual experience and a developing personal iconography of metaphorical characters, these scenarios are rendered as encoded fictions or metaphors of trauma, couched in a "pop style."

"Central to both his two-dimensional work and his clandestine, larger than life sculpture..."is a focus on how individuals encounter and engage their environments: the ways in which they choose to act, believe, respond, or not “knowingly or unknowingly”; through conscious decision-making or when caught randomly in unknown or unanticipated systems."
