Home is just a place
An exhibition of mixed media works by Loeritha Saayman
Opens on Friday 3 November at 18h30 for 19h00
Celebrated Pretoria artist and art tutor Loeritha Saayman, who studied art through UNISA and opened the Brooklyn Fine Arts Studio in 2000, was in art residency in Paris, France for three months starting at the end of 2015.
The works on this exhibition is a response from the artist on her temporary home and experience in Paris. The cityís romantic character stood in sharp contrast with tight security measures and a sombre mood, after the terrorist attacks in November 2015. The artist became an observer and spectator of vulnerable people, locals and foreigners alike, going about their daily business, against a backdrop of winter greys. These people, documented by photography, street sketching and life-drawing sketches, became the source material and inspiration of the two and three-dimensional works on this exhibition.
The exhibition will be opened by Caroline Terblanche on Friday 3 November 2017 at 18h30 for 19h00 and runs until Wednesday 22 November 2017.
