Landscape, Now and Then, ABSA Gallery Absa will be hosting the “Landscape, Now and Then”, an exhibition based on art works from the Absa collection, which explores the relationship between the representation of land and the possession of power. On show until 2 February 2012, “Landscape, Now and Then” draws on selected artworks from the Absa collection and combines them into an exhibition that explores ways in which landscape(s) across South Africa have been historically used, portrayed, read and/or understood. South Africa has instances where, in its rich history, the relationship between power and land-ownership led to drastic shifts within the socio-political landscape. “This exhibition is a visual narrative portraying a historic journey of the chronological representation of land within our country’, says Dr Paul Bayliss, Absa Art and Museum curator. “It includes a selection of works from the Absa collection that starts with the old masters such as Anton van Wouw and J.H. Pierneef and includes some of Absa’s more recent acquisitions such as Helen Sebidi, Gerhard Marx and Joachim Schonfeld. The exhibit will comprise between 15 and 20 wall pieces of art as well as a number of sculptures.” The exhibit captures moments in South Africa’s history surrounding land representation - from the romantic portrayal of landscape and South Africa’s industrial development to the struggle that led to South Africa’s democracy in 1994 and the years thereafter. ““Landscape, Now and Then” will be held at the Absa Gallery at Absa Towers North, 161 Main Street, Johannesburg. The exhibition will be open from 08:30 to 16:00 daily and entrance is free. Members of the public are requested to bring their ID books along for parking and entry purposes.

Alice Goldin By Lloyd Pollak When Alice Goldin is mentioned, people often exclaim “Oh the tree painter!” in a dismissive manner that implies that such subject matter is hopelessly tame and conventional, and that it therefore forms the ideal material for the female artist. Her current exhibition ‘Cape Woodcut Prints’ at the SA Print Gallery demolishes these sexist stereotypes, affirms the perennial relevance of her themes, and reveals the audacity of Alice’s invention.

This review of over 50 years of creativity demonstrates that the artist is no titivating prettifier. ‘Winter’ typifies the stark abstraction of her rugged woodcuts. A minimalising ruthlessness is brought to bear on the motif, and the two trees are sieved of volume, and reduced to flat planes in a bold two dimensional composition. Nature assists in this process of paring down, for this is a wintry study of leafless trees, and the image portrays naught but a tracery of trunks and branches standing out in black silhouette against the sky. Alice is a virtuoso of the crop, and instead of portraying trees in their entirety in the conventional manner,

SA ART TIMES. Dec 2011- Jan 2012

she eliminates the lower sections of the trunks and, along with them, the view of the earth from which they spring, and the landscape of which they form part. The viewer is suspended in mid-air as he gazes at the upper reaches of the trunks and branches where fresh growth occurs. The frail, at tenuated shoots contrast with the solid blocky trunks, and create delicate cobwebby patterns like the crazing spreading over a ceramic. This wiry linear mesh is set against subtle grays and pale orange to suggest the rising sun slowly dispersing early morning mists. The artist captures the still of dawn, the chill in the air and the sense of damp. The vital, zigzagging angularities of the twisted branches shatter the calm of the frozen moment, and transfuse the trees with life, revealing how they respond to the stimuli around them as they frisk and palpate the air in search of warmth and light. Trees have long been employed as metaphors for man, especially in 17th century Holland and the German speaking countries during the Romantic and Biedermeier periods, and these traditions infuse Alice’s work with rich humanistic resonance. In ‘Winter’ and ‘Morning Sun’, trees ascending to embrace the light acquire overtones of spiritual aspiration and ‘immortal longings’. In ‘Kiaat’, the trunk and branches blasted by the elements epitomize resilience and heroism. Tranquil groves such as those in ‘Kloof Neck 11’, embody Utopian ideals of mankind living together in amity and concord. A startling Ukiyo-e print of a shrewish Tokyo geisha

by Kuniyoshi graces Alice’s studio. The artist is a passionate devotee of Japanese prints, and the sparseness of her composition, the prominence of the voids, the jagged, angular contours, and marked asymmetry, all manifest the sure but frugal touch of the masters of the floating world. The joy of the woodcutter translating landscape into the grain, figuring and carved grooves of the woodblock is patent in ‘Lakeside 1’, a chef-d’oeuvre of dynamic graphic design. No placid moorland idyll, this is an energized and eruptive composition in which earth, vlei, reeds and trees are dragooned into whirring patterns of colliding line that transcend mere appearances, and capture the natural forces that shape the landscape. During her childhood, the artist spent her summer holidays in the Austrian mountains, and the long walks she took through the woods with her father, imbued her with a deep love of trees. “As soon as I moved from Pretoria to Cape Town in 1971”, she told me, “I fell in love with the environment. The constantly changing vistas of the mountain and stone pines that I saw everyday as I drove along De Waal drive rekindled my passion for trees, and proved a huge source of inspiration to me.” To celebrate the artist’s 90th birthday next year, a retrospective will be held in Vienna where she spent the first fourteen years of her life. After the Anschluss in 1938, the family fled to England, and within months all the relatives they left behind had been murdered in concentration camps. Until recently there was a willed amnesia about this tragic episode in Austria’s history, however the younger generation wish to make amends and confront the past, and this is why Alice believes she received the invitation. Although South Africa, where she has lived for 64 years, raised three children, and lost two husbands, is her beloved home, her European childhood and youth formed her taste and personality, and she still hankers for the crumbling splendors of the old world - its architecture, parks and gardens, the cultural embarrass de richesses and the thriving musical life. Scenes of music-making loom large in her early work, and the Austrian passion for music courses through her veins. Alice has charming childhood memories of Mama singing lieder whilst Papa played the piano and of waltzing lessons with impeccable boys clad in freshly laundered white gloves. Travel satisfied Alice’s yearning for Europe’s ancient parapets. She spent lengthy sojourns in Rome, London and the Cite des Arts in Paris, and paintings and prints celebrating the world’s most beautiful and civilized cities, their monuments, statuary, fountains and gardens, form yet another facet of her oeuvre. Once, whilst in Alice’s company, I foolishly described an eighty year old woman as elderly. “Eighty is not old”, the indignant artist exclaimed, and she is living proof of this. Her birthday exhibition in Vienna made her realize that time waits for no man, and she promptly sat down and penned her memoirs which will be published next year. The Art Times wishes her ample breath to blow out all 90 candles, and keep her in good health for many a year to come.

Golden Artist Colors is looking for Workshop Teachers!

The Golden Artist Educators Program is looking for qualied candidates in South Africa to join our esteemed team of acrylic educators. Patti Brady, Director of the GOLDEN Working Artist Program, author of Rethinking Acrylic from Northlight Publishing and an accomplished professional acrylic painter, will be conducting an intensive four days career development workshop designed to enhance your acrylic skills, give you new teaching ideas, and increase your workshop offerings.

During the workshop you will create an extensive series of nished sample/instructional demonstration boards to take back with you upon completion of the workshop for use in your own workshops.

Topics include: • unique and unusual colour mixing • understanding the variety of gels and mediums and how each one can be used in expanded forms for painting, for grounds, for texturing, for glazing, and for making “skins”. • Experience the new OPEN Acrylics that have a very long stay-wet time and master the new Digital Grounds that allow for printing with an ink-jet printer. Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will receive a GOLDEN certication, as well as ongoing support and benets as a member of the Golden Artist Educator Program.
