Berg an exhibition by Martin Rossouw22. April 2014

Martin Rossouw’s work is till up at Wolves, it’ll be there until the end of the month. There are some really nice pieces and what’s cool is you can buy them individually or as a set of 3 and the idea behind this show is idea is simple and fun – He’s drawn a mountain, who lives in the mountain and what a small piece of their home inside it looks like. These are all priced super well too, framed they are R450, unframed R350 and for a set of of 3 framed you’re looking at R1100, which is nothing. They’re a nice size too, bigger than an A4 but square is shape (these are not all the prints, there are quite a few more).

Let me know if you are keen to buy any, there are 5 limited edition prints of each, obviously some have more prints left than others- angie@wolves.co.za

Ghost Photographs by Angela Deane07. April 2014

Came across these “Ghost Photographs”, which are little paintings on found photographs by artist Angela Deane. I think this idea is so much fun, it makes me smile a lot.

Porcelain dishes covered in hordes of hand-painted ants by Evelyn Bracklow04. April 2014

These one-of-a-kind vintage porcelain dishes covered in loads of hand-painted ants are created by the genius hands of German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie. The minute detail that makes up each ant and covers each plate is crazy. I really like these pieces, they make my skin a bit itchy, but but my face super smiley, if you know what I mean (I know you do).

- The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate—by then wandered by ants—fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image. Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: this very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail.

Berg an exhibition by Martin Rossouw02. April 2014

This Friday, the 4th of April we have a new exhibition opening at Wolves, it’s called Berg and it’s by a very talented young artist called Martin Rossouw (I will obviously do another post when all his work is up on our blue walls). See you Friday xx

- “Berg is Martin Rossouw’s first illustration exhibition exploring some of the colourful characters living in his mind. The series will feature some crazy mountains, each with a specific theme. Apart from the mountains themselves, there will also be the kooky inhabitants and a glimpse into their solitary everyday lives in these mountains.”
