Indepth Arts News:

"Michele Silk: Being Frank..."
2007-03-12 until 2007-03-31
artSPACE durban
Durban, , ZA South Africa

artSpace Durban announces their next opening "A Sense of..." by Grace Kotze on Monday 12th March, 2007 at 6:30pm. The exhibition of oil paintings will be opened by Dee Donaldson. There will be breyani, a cash bar and car guards on duty. Through the process of producing artworks for this exhibition, Kotze found that she had to engage with the power of an emotion remembered and the power that paint holds in communicating such a quality. Often a sense of a remembered person or incident carries far more resonance than a detailed representation, which can distract from the essence.

Her works explore such ideas, using both minimal detail in images and paint application which can break down form and introduce an emotional vocabulary of its own. Kotze is fascinated by the way in which the artist has the potential to manipulate in order to produce specific emotional keys. Kotze continues to investigate at what point does the image, when broken down by paint application, lose its visual literary meaning and paint become the dominant voice.
