 A consummate skilled sculptor and craftsman, Taylor is known for his large-scale sculptures characterized by his alternative choice of materials which vary from bronze casts to natural materials such as rammed earth, grass and stone.
In his exhibition titled “New Work”, held in the Collector’s Room of the gallery, from Sat 25 Jul – Sat 29 Aug 2015, Taylor presented a series of composite portraits, with merged likenesses drawn from the people in his daily life. These sculptures may be interpreted as representations of self, while they also pay tribute to the very community that defines and shapes one’s identity. In this sense, the work is both introspective and reflective, an exploration of what it means to be an individual that seeks to belong and thrive within a specific community. Taylor is one of South Africa’s most successful contemporary sculptors. His work is represented in private and corporate collections around the globe including Rand Merchant Bank; Saronsberg Wine Estate; Ellerman House; Museum Beelden aan Zee (The Hague); Sasol and the University of Pretoria, The University of the Free State, University of Cape Town, to name but a few. A great deal of his sculptures feature in public spaces both nationally and internationally.

cobus haupt (b 1976)

 

 

 Haupt (b 1976) studied sculpture at the Tshwane University of Technology (formerly the Pretoria Technikon) completing his B Tech in Fine Arts in 1998. In 2001 he won first prize for his cement male figure, Untitled, in the PPC Sculpture Competition. He is best known for his figurative bronze sculptures.

“Haupt’s signature feature of his work is the flawed bumps and unresolved imperfections left intentionally to highlight the casting process. This trait gives equal importance to the method and medium as it does to the human figure portrayed.” Johan Thom

He was the winner of the Kempton Park/Tembisa Metropolitan Fine Arts Competition 30 June 2001. He was the runner-up in the 1999 PPC Sculpture Competition and won first prize in 2001 in the Technical Category. He has exhibited extensively across South Africa, and is widely collected by both private and corporate individuals. He has been commissioned by the National Heritage Monument Project to complete a public sculpture of Walter Rabusana which currently resides at Fountains Valley, Pretoria. He was also commissioned to create a sculpture of J.T Gumede which is currently on view in Pietermaritzburg.

Artist statement

I’m interested in how the alchemy of information and ideas manifest. How they are presented and interconnected. Based on our own experiences how we process them and then pass them on. Ideas or qualities are streaming all around us in the ether, call it the noise, and from this noise we latch onto certain things or they latch onto us. I’m interested in how the same images can be presented and the outcome can be so different. In what is universal or timeless( the heart) and how an image can be manipulated from its original meaning to suit the propaganda of a certain culture or society( skull and crossbones).

Why certain information/images spread like viruses and others remain dormant waiting for the right circumstances to flourish. “ – Norman O’ Flynn. To date Norman has held 9 solo exhibitions in Africa and participated in numerous group shows nationally and internationally. His work is widely sought after and hangs in private, corporate and museums collections around the world.

Liza Grobler (b 1974)

Artist Statement

Liza Grobler (b. 1974) lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. Through her artworks, she explores the dialogue between inner and outer landscape. Her installations create dialogues with the spaces in which they are displayed and explore the connections between people, artworks and the world around us. The viewer is encouraged to travel with her into an imaginary world where fact and fiction becomes one. In this world, everything is in flux and anything is possible. The objects, images and installations are constructed through collaboration, interaction and exchange. Gallery exhibitions, projects and interventions are integrated components that cross-reference one another.
Grobler received a MAFA (cum laude) from Stellenbosch University in 1999. She has attended residencies in Norway, Finland, the United States, Mexico, Switzerland, Belgium and France. Her work is included in numerous corporate and private collections, including the Francis Greenberger Collection (USA), Frans Masereel Centrum (Belgium), Benetton Collection (Italy) and Nando’s International (UK, Australia and USA). To date, she has had thirteen acclaimed solo exhibitions and initiated numerous site-specific and collaborative interventions in South Africa and abroad.

vusi beauchamp

Vusi Beauchamp (b 1979) studied printmaking and painting at the Tshwane University of Technology and Graphic Design at Damelin. 

He describes his work as encompasses being an artist, multimedia designer, and art director. His paintings are created by using various methods, including spray painting and stencilling as well as materials such as crayons and acrylic paints. His work comments on social issues, politics and events that make up the South African social landscape. His works are the artistic version of satirical journalism and social critique, often controversial. Humour is an important ingredient, and is heightened through the typical ‘stereotyping’ by the media of our country’s politics and politicians. 

His solo exhibitions include: Featured artist in the Collector’s Room, Fried Contemporary Pretoria, (2016) Woordfees, Stellenbosch(2016); Paradyse of the Damned, Pretoria art museum (2015); Smoking Cheese, Obert Contemporary, Johannesburg (2009).

He has participated in numerous group exhibitions: Cape Town Art Fair (2016); Twenty: Art in the Time of Democracy which was a travelling exhibition, first shown at Appalachian State University, North Carolina, the Pretoria Art Museum and the University of Johannesburg Art Gallery. His work has also shown on exhibitions such as Capital: Present, Fried Contemporary (2015); Protest at the Hazard Gallery, Johannesburg (2015); Between Democracies 1989 – 2014: Memory and Commemoration at Constitution Hill (2015); Johannesburg Art Fair (2015); and Goodman Gallery, Cape Town (2014).
