artSPACE durban
Durban, , ZA South Africa

artSPACE durban is pleased to present two exhibitions during the last weeks of November 2006. In the Main Gallery we view Recent Works by Louise Hall and showing in the Middle Gallery are paintings by Caroline Birch.artSPACE durban is a new initiative in Durban that recently opened its doors. artSPACE durban is located in a warehouse in a light industrial area of Durban, South Africa. artSPACE durban is a SPACE for artists of all disciplines to interact within. There are three galleries to exhibit in and on the floor above are artists studio spaces to rent.

With her abiding interest in the human form, this exhibition of recent figurative paintings and drawings by KZN artist Louise Hall reflects the development of two main themes: moving figures and the interaction of audiences with contemporary media. These works are rooted in drawing from observation, memory and imagination, and include images of cyclists, a cinema series and intimate interiors. Hall paints in oil on board while many of the drawings are mixed media pieces in which she has used watercolour, ink, pastel, conte and compressed charcoal. Moving to: Irma Stern Museum Cape Town: 13th February 3rd March 2007

and IN THE MIDDLE GALLERY: Caroline Birch

The paintings in this exhibition are a bring together of elements I love - the decorative and the simple, and trying to find a meeting place of the two. This is especially so in the paintings of people where I want to simply catch their aliveness and joins it with the decorative aspect.

Caroline studied art at the University of PMB graduating in 1988. Her first exhibition was at artSPACE durban in 2004. In 2005 she was a finalist in the Nivea Start the art award.
