Josie Grindrod exhibition

Last Light

5 - 26 November 2016

Opening by Stanley Hermans, artist and writer, 11am 5 November 2016.

Walkabout with the artist 11am 12 November 2016.

In the exhibition Last Light, artist Josie Grindrod takes a photograph of children playing in a South African landscape as her dominant referent and uses this to explore the nature of pictorial and embodied imagination.

Situating this motif within the genre of a te champtre, Grindrod investigates themes of sensuality and innocence, fear and fantasy, power and play.

Shown at the University of Cape Town's Irma Stern Museum at a time of intense social contestation, the artist seeks through painting, drawing, print and installation to expand notions of 'encounter', evoking an atmosphere redolent of tenderness, violence, desire and loss.
