POP-UP-AUSSTELLUNGEN ZEITGENÖSSISCHER KUNST AUS SÜDAFRIKA KATALOG 2019

The Travelling Art Gallery


An artists’ initiative. Taking contemporary South African art to the world and inviting the world to South Africa.


VORWORT „Großes zu erreichen ist niemals Zufall; es sind Kräfte, die zusammenarbeiten.“ Dieser wunderbare Satz von J. C. Penney war von Anfang an der Leitsatz für die Künstlerinitiative ‚The Travelling Art Gallery‘. Wir freuen uns, Menschen mit diesem Projekt zu vereinen und zu verbinden. Kunst kann soviel Kommunikation starten und dieser Katalog zeigt die Kunst, die eine Handvoll Menschen in Südafrika in Zusammenarbeit mit 16 Künstlern aus Südafrika für die Ausstellungen in den drei Städten Frankfurt, Stuttgart und München für die Reise in 2019 ausgewählt und zusammengestellt haben.

Sprecher und Organisatoren von The Travelling Art Gallery, Barbara Lenhard and Florian Gast

The Travelling Art Gallery ist ein Projekt, das von der Unterstützung, dem Herz, der Leidenschaft und der Liebe von vielen Menschen getragen wird. In welcher Form auch immer Sie ein Teil dieser Initiative geworden sind: wir sagen Danke! Nachem wir aus Platzgründen nicht immer alle Werke ausstellen können und nicht jeder zu den Pop-Up-Ausstellungen kommen kann, soll Sie dieser Ausstellungskatalog inspirieren und ermutigen, eines – oder gerne auch mehrere – der Werke zu erwerben. Wir kennen alle ausstellenden Künstler persönlich und beraten Sie gerne zu den jeweiligen Stücken und sollten Sie etwas spezielles suchen, sind wir ebenfalls gerne behilflich. Ganz besonders freut es uns, dass dieses Jahr mit von der Partie drei ‚Alumni-Künstler’ sind. Künstler, die in ihrer internationaler Karriere und Preisentwicklung bereits ein gutes Stück weiter sind und die mit ihrer Kunst und ihren Namen ihre Kollegen unterstützen. Freuen Sie sich auf ein paar sehr besondere Werke von Natasha Barnes, Bonnie Walters und Riaan van Zyl. Kunst darf gekauft werden! Die Erlöse aus den Verkäufen geben den Künstlern die Möglichkeit, sich ganz auf ihr kreatives Schaffen zu konzentrieren und alle Preise sind mit den Künstlern abgestimmt.

Dieses Jahr neu unterstützt The Travelling Art Gallery und damit auch Sie durch Ihren Kunsterwerb Projekte des Emerging Artists Development Trust (EADT) in Südafrika, der Künstler in ihrer Karriere unterstützt und Möglichkeiten der internationalen Präsenz sucht und für Künstler realisiert.

Und nun viel Freude beim Blättern, Kunst genießen und aussuchen. Wir schicken jetzt herzliche Grüße - noch aus Kapstadt - und freuen uns schon jetzt auf viele Begegnungen in Deutschland. Bitte kontaktieren Sie uns, wenn Sie sich für ein Bild entschieden haben – wir nehmen gerne ihren Kaufwunsch entgegen und stimmen mit Ihnen die Abholung bzw. Zustellung ab. Bis dahin, eine gute Zeit,

ANDREW NTSHABELE

Artist, Andrew Ntshabele, born 1986, lives and works in the inner city of Johannesburg, and his art is informed by his environment. His mixed-media paintings – a fusion of collage and acrylic – depict what he sees and lives with every day. Andrew was born in the small rural town of Moruleng in the North West Province but moved with his family to the city at a young age. He studied Art at the University of Johannesburg and was awarded his BTech degree, majoring in painting, in 2013. “I have lived in Johannesburg since the age of four and have witnessed its physical, socio-economic and political changes post-Apartheid,” he explains. “I still live in the inner city where I’m confronted by poverty, pollution and urban decay every day. I’m interested in the people who live in this environment, in the negative

effects of rapid urbanisation and how they put a strain on the people I encounter and interact with daily.” Andrew’s work investigates the social predicament of the city to understand the root causes of the current inner-city decay. “My work is a social commentary on the socio-economic challenges that the majority of Black South Africans face. My focal subject matter is often the pollution and rubbish amongst which the innercity residents live, which is why my paintings incorporate more than one medium. They’re a fusion of collage and acrylic paint, and are produced from photographs I take on my daily travels around the inner city and its outskirts.”

Bonnie Walters was born in Springs, matriculated in Bloemfontein and achieved a BA (English and Psychology) at Stellenbosch University. After careers in advertising, finance and property, she enrolled at the Wits Technikon School of Art (now the University of Johannesburg) in 1996 and acquired a BTech honours (cum laude) in 2001. After lecturing in Drawing at Wits Tech, Bonnie became a full-time artist in 2006. She lives and works in Johannesburg and is currently on sabbatical from doing her Masters degree in Fine Arts.

visual and psychological-based report, amplifying instances, memories and childhood experiences that are universal. Her works are ambivalent: often dealing with and expressing personal memories and inner longings, or awakening in the viewers their own lived experiences. Bonnie’s work shows great skill and confidence that can only be achieved through a prolific work ethic and allconsuming commitment. Her art is held in private collections both in South Africa and abroad.

She has a devoted interest in the communicative and healing power of art. Her drawings represent a

CORNE EKSTEEN

Corné Eksteen was born 1973 in Zastron in the Free State. He studied towards a BA in Fine Art at the University of Pretoria and at the University of South Africa. He then spent several years working in related fields, from menswear design to interior decorating and digital design. He now lives in Durban and has been actively working and exhibiting as a visual artist since 1996. His work relies on both figurative and abstract painting traditions in the creation of pieces that not only represent the physical appearance of his sitters, but also reflects on and explores their inner life and state of mind. “The works attempt to visually dissect and deconstruct the subject matter in the pursuit of an understanding of the dynamics and transient nature of the 21st-century psyche,” he says. “They are intended to evoke discussion on the idea of personal identity as a series of

disjointed concepts in a continuous state of flux: a search for new archetypes for the 21st century.” His works are created through a process that includes several sessions with a sitter, followed by digital manipulation of reference materials before the actual painting is started. Paintings are created using several often experimental techniques and rely on finding a balance between the transparent and opaque, dark and light, the controlled and the expressive. The completed images are seemingly simplistic, but confront on many levels with their raw emotional complexity. Eksteen is one of South Africa’s most respected portrait artists and had numerous very successful solo exhibitions.

CORNE THERON

Cornè Theron was born in Worcester in the Western Cape in 1974. She matriculated in Bloemfontein and went on to study law at the University of the Orange Free State, graduating in 1997 with an LLB, after which she married and moved to Swellendam. She currently lives on a wine farm in Breedekloof. She practised as a conveyancer for two years but resigned to explore other areas of self-expression. She started taking art classes at Rust-enVrede Art Gallery in Durbanville and subsequently participated in two group exhibitions there, and hosted several private exhibitions. She was chosen as one of 10 artists for the Fresh Talent exhibition held by the Crouse Art Gallery. She has sold a number of paintings to clients in various parts of the country and overseas. She describes herself as a contemporary neo-optical artist. In her abstract figures, she often

portrays images of women who find themselves underwater. “I examine our reactions to environments that are foreign to our natural abilities and control,” explains Corné. “I experiment with different types of glass as filters to create my images. I enjoy exploring the fact that our eyes are not developed to see underwater, so the images are blurred. I use water as a metaphor for our subconscious. A neuropsychiatrist friend of mine calls the subconscious our stored memory. Most of our reactions stem from our ‘programming’. I am fascinated by the way we mostly react towards each other without first logically thinking about it and reasoning about it. The sources of our influence and the way it impacts us, in terms of our individuality and the way we relate to each other, motivates my work.” Theron now has a gallery representing her in France and has exhibited in Belgium, New York and London as well as Munich.

DAVID KUIJERS

David Kuijers was born 1962 in Vanderbijlpark near Johannesburg of Dutch immigrant parents. His father was a part-time artist who painted under the pseudonym B. Arteld. Surrounded from a very young age by art materials and books, art was always going to be a part of his life. He completed his schooling at the Art, Music and Ballet School (now ProArte) in Pretoria, with a distinction in Graphics and the “Best Painter” award for the year. He went on to earn a diploma in Graphic Design at the Cape Teknikon (now the Cape Peninsula University of Technology) where he majored in Illustration, and received the Merit Award for 1989 on graduating. After freelancing as a designer/ illustrator for some years, he received some large commissions, which helped to ease his transition to

working as a full-time artist in 1999. These commissions included work for The President Hotel in Bantry Bay, The Radisson Blu at the V&A Waterfront, the Mediclinic Private Hospital Group and Tiger Foods. In 2002 a book, entitled ‘David Kuijers Paints the Town’ was published in Cape Town. In 2004 he worked with British Publishers, DeMontford Fine Art and was included in their ‘Ultimate Collection’ of that year. David currently lives in Greyton with his wife and three children. He works in a variety of styles and techniques, broadly separated (by himself) into four categories according to the techniques employed. He is known for his fun and playful style and work that incorporates clean cut lines and vibrant colours.

EDWARD SELEMATSELA

Edward Selematsela was born 1966 in the rural area of Modjadji in Limpopo. He studied Business and Art at Eastside College (now Johannesburg College) in Troyeville before starting a Fine Arts degree at the University of South Africa. He met the late Dulcie Robinson, an esteemed Johannesburg artist, in the 1990s and she became his mentor, encouraging him and promoting his art. Together they also founded the Little Artist School in downtown Johannesburg in 1995. The project began in an orphanage to provide an activity for the children after school but soon reached out further to other disadvantaged children. Deutsche Bank has sponsored the Little Artist School since 2004 and it has grown in stature, producing many notable South African artists over the years. Edward still volunteers his time at the school, where he teaches and mentors students.

In 1997 Edward received the Merit of Excellence Award from the French Culture Centre in Pessac, Bordeaux. He was also awarded top Honours in the Black Like Us competition in 2007. His paintings focus on rural Limpopo and the pride, humanity and simple life of its people. Many companies and individuals from across the world have invested in Edward’s art, including Vox United in the USA, the South African Embassy in Madagascar, Deutsche Bank, the Johannesburg Metropolitan Council, Wright RoseInnes, the Development Bank of South Africa and the University of Johannesburg.

lebohang sithole

Lebohang Sithole was born 1989 on the East Rand, north-east of Johannesburg, where he still lives. After five years of studying professional printmaking, he had his first solo exhibition, entitled ‘Intathakusa’ (‘Before the Sun Rises’) in 2016. While he’s predominantly known for his printmaking, Lebohang also works in other mediums, including soft pastels, acrylics and charcoal. In his printmaking, he combines drypoint with monoprint to create unique prints. His subject matter is inspired by his grandfather, who was a musician. “My grandfather was the lead singer and organist for the Amajembe Jazz Band and I was born the same day he died. Almost everything that my grandfather did during his lifetime is closely paralleled with the things that I do in my life,” he explains.

“When I visit my grandfather’s house I get the feeling I have lived there, when I touch his instruments, I feel I have played them, when I look at his photograph, I see myself. Looking at my grandfather’s strength and belief in who he was has encouraged me as an artist. I believe that one person can inherit something special from a family member and be recognised as that person. My work is dedicated to him.” Children are also a strong theme in Lebohang’s work. “I like to explore images of children. In every family, country and race that a child is born into, the environment influences the development of that child, and determines who he or she becomes. Children are a symbol of growth, resulting in a defining perspective of ‘I am what I am because I am determined by the way I have grown up’.”

MICHAELA RINALDI

For Michaela Rinaldi, Art has been a love and passion since early childhood. However, she never pursued it after school because starting a family required a steady income. However, when she resigned from her job in Sales in 2010, she decided to follow her heart and start painting. “My art is my process,” she says. “A journey of growth through painting. An awakening of consciousness through my gift and a therapy that I’m compelled to go to daily and relentlessly.” Self-taught, Michaela works primarily in acrylics, charcoal and ink, but loves to experiment. “I am constantly finding new techniques and new ways of expressing myself.

Don’t be concerned with my story; what is yours? How does the painting make you feel? What emotions and feelings does it stir in you? How does it resonate with you? “If you can look at the piece in this way, the painting will take on a whole new life, different from person to person: a personal and intimate experience. If I can achieve this in you, then my piece is complete.”

“My art is my process,” says Michaela Rinaldi. “A journey of growth through painting. An awakening of consciousness through my gift and a therapy that I’m compelled to go to daily and relentlessly.” “I am constantly experimenting; finding new techniques and new ways of expressing myself. I am following no rules, no set format or trying to please. I paint from the heart, truth is my only way. I am not concerned with proportion or perfection. I capture a feeling. My latest affair is with colour!”

NATASHA BARNES

Painting has consumed Natasha’s life (born 1960) since the age of 7. Completely self-taught, her journey began by transforming ordinary visual images into works of art, instinctively finding their way to the walls of many commercial and private collections around the world. During the early part of her career she painted mainly contemporary floral and Landscape paintings which are still widely available in print through numerous publishers worldwide. As with all journeys she found herself moving in a completely different direction in a very short space of time. Her love for expressionism and movement was hard to suppress. “I eventually let my hand roam free, creating the many large abstract works of colour, for which I am known today. I am greatly influenced by nature and the lesson provided by the Lotus flower; it is not hard to see that beautiful things do indeed come

from dark places. It’s astounding and inspirational that such a beautiful flower can bloom and be at ease in muddy waters. Look for the lotus in your painting: you will find this mark in all my work.” In addition to numerous international art fairs, group and solo exhibitions, she has produced artworks for Hollywood, TV, greeting cards, Hospitality, airlines and boardrooms. Today Natasha is considered to be one of Africa’s most published artists. Natasha’s career did not begin with art, but instead she holds an international Grande Diplome in Cordon Bleu cookery form the Prestigious Silwood Kitchen in Rondebosch, South Africa. Today Natasha keeps a studio in Ballito, South Africa, her home. When she’s not spending a great deal of her day painting, she likes running marathons for fun, and spending time in the African bush.

PIERRE ISSA

Pierre Issa is a young contemporary artist (born 1975) based in Cape Town. He started a degree at the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Fine Art, but left after just a year because he didn’t like the teaching methods and creative direction, nor the lack of emphasis on contemporary art. “This means I am essentially self-taught,” he says, “and I try to learn more with every new piece in my portfolio.” For Pierre, energy and art need to go hand in hand. “It is my goal to first cultivate the energy when creating an artwork, and then to get the essence of that energy across to the viewer. While being open to interpretation, my work hopefully strikes an emotional chord in the viewer without attempting to define or say too much. I try to work on this communication between the internal world of feeling and the external world of expression with every new piece, attempting to better the relationship between the two.”

He says he needs to be an artist. “Whether it is painting, music, drawing or poetry, expression is bonded to my nature. If I cease to express for too long my head might burst. I do not try to define what I am expressing as I don’t think it is something that can be defined, at least not with words. I do love the idea of making someone feel something that comes across deeper and stronger in art than if I were directly interacting with them.” Pierre loves to experiment as he tries to find new ways to captivate the viewer, new ways to get something across. “My art is still growing, and I am still learning. I will hopefully never stop experimenting and always seek to break out of a self-inflicted box.”

Ramarutha Makoba

Ramarutha Makoba was born in Soweto in 1984 where he grew up in Diepkloof Zone 3 and 4. From an early age he loved watching cartoons and used to draw his favourite characters. His father was a good artist but treated art as a hobby. It was his grandmother who was the first person to encourage Ramarutha to take his art seriously. When Ramarutha was 13, he attended art classes at a local community centre where Chris Molefe had a profound influence on his work. He later attended workshops at the Johannesburg Art Gallery and completed a two-year course at FUBA (Federated Union of Black Artists). He has also completed a three-year professional printmaking programme, and received certificates of excellence for his work.

for disadvantaged youth to attend art classes and to learn a skill. He continues to produce unique works that combine print processes, painting and charcoal. “Scratching into the plate allows me to create an image that reflects a time and place that is close to me,” says Ramarutha. “My work deals with social ignorance and the hardship of people with few resources. The works express a personal story of my relationship with my community.”

He is now Head Teacher at the Little Artist School, a Johannesburg-based project that creates an opportunity

riaan van zyl

Riaan van Zyl continues to push the boundaries of contemporary art and classical techniques and concepts. Van Zyl takes inspiration from commonplace, ordinary ideas and likes to showcase his impression and apprehension of things around him, effectively capturing their context and value with a de-constructed eye. At first glance his work looks abstract and confusing but the results have their own very personal syntax, punctuation and orchestration. They become almost a performance of movement rather than a standard drawing.

He has exhibited internationally and locally in more than 30 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions, and his works hang among some of the most prestigious art collections around the world.

Riaan is focused on having people look at everyday things in a different light. He loves working in experimental mediums such as old car oil and anthracite, for example, as well as playing with new and old mediums.

SARA GAGA

Sara Gaqa was born in 1980 in a small town called Geldern in the very west of Germany where she spent most of her childhood. She also lived in Teheran/Iran for a couple of years where her father is originally from. Growing up, she always had a keen interest in art and design, and started painting on canvas at the age of 14. In 2000 Sara decided to study Natural Science and finished her masters in Biology in 2006. She met her husband while traveling through South Africa, and finally decided to move to South Africa in 2008 at which point she left the field of Science and decided to follow her passion. Since 2015 she has been actively concentrating on her work as an artist. Today she resides with her family in Hout Bay, near Cape Town. As a completely self-taught artist, she draws inspiration from all that surrounds her. She is especially fascinated with the African culture and its people, and this influences

her art, as does her insight into the African heritage and myths gained through her marriage into the Xhosa culture. The magic of Africa is combined with the gold of the Orient as well as the European love for simplicity and non-colour. Her art does not dominate a room but rather harmonises with the environment, while still sending out a powerful message to the careful observer. Soft colours and textures model the artwork’s different developmental stages from draft sketch to detailed finish, and yet each stage complements the other. Sara’s portraits are meant to speak to the observer, communicating a feeling, a moment in time, a memory. Sara prefers to work with oil, sometimes in combination with other media. Using brushes and the pallet knife, she tries to find a fine balance between naturalistic and abstract elements.

semi lubisi

Semi Lubisi, born 1980, grew up in Ivory Park to the east of Johannesburg. He started drawing when he was at primary school, where he says one of his teachers changed his life by buying him a drawing book. After school, he went on to study Electrical Engineering, but dropped out and instead went back to his drawings. “I knew this is what I was meant to do from a young age,” he says.

watercolours, charcoal, ink and acrylics for his drawings, and sometimes collage. He gained a Top 100 Certification at the Thami Mnyele Fine Art Awards in 2017 and is a member of ART@ Zoo Lake. “It inspires me when local and international customers enjoy my work, and that motivates me to continue to work even harder and share my talent with the world.”

Semi has no formal art education. He taught himself how to draw from reading art books and admiring the work of other artists. “I learn every day from every stroke; every critique is an opportunity to develop,” he says. As a fine artist, Semi specialises in street scenes. “My inspiration is derived from the everyday lives of ordinary South Africans, from children playing in the townships to the normal comings and goings of ordinary citizens.” He uses

SHAKES TEMBANI

Born in 1975, Meshack ‘Shakes’ Tembani grew up in Crossroads, an impoverished region in Cape Town. From a young age he loved art and doggedly persevered to find a way forward in the profession. With no formal art training, and against improbable odds, Tembani succeeded to gain momentum within Cape Town’s art community at the turn of the millennium. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Tembani is not interested in depicting township life with its crowded shacks and failing infrastructure. He reduces detail to serve his chief objective of monumentalising his subjects and their contributions to society; he celebrates the beauty in the seemingly ordinary moments of township life in South Africa. Using a deliberate stylised technique of bold, flat colour, graphic edges and minimalistic tone, Tembani portrays human figures recognisable

by their group identity rather than their individual characteristics. The artist is drawn to female figures as pillars in his community – the hard workers, solo parents, breadwinners and churchgoers. He often depicts uniformed groups with their accordant dress code, symbolic of equality, dignity, solidarity and adherence to a cause greater than the individual. Tembani completed a certificate in screen-printing, paper-mâché, fabric painting and craft at Ruth Prowse College of Art and Design in 1999, a Diploma in Adult Education at the University of Cape Town (2003) and a Product Design and Development Course at Madesa, Observatory (2004). He was a resident artist at the Castle of Good Hope Art Studios (2007-2011). He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his works are part of private as well as corporate art collections.
