Friday Jan 10 - Saturday Jan 25
3 Hetty Ave, Fairland
The first exhibition at art gallery Lizamore & Associates new space on Jan Smuts Avenue features the work of artists Mandy Johnston and Cow Mash (Kgaogelo Mashilo). Johnston is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates compelling portraits and sculptures from wire mesh. In this series of works she looks at the topic of tradition and object making as ritual, examining the traditions and styles that we choose to discard or overlook and those which are collected and celebrated. Kgaogelo Mashilo aka Cow Mash also works with multiple mediums and media, and in this exhibition figuratively explores positions of prayer through drawing and sculptures made from synthetic leather and wool.
Note that the gallery will close 14 December 2019 and reopen on 10 January 2020.
