Omni, along with the artist’s daughter, Mrs Candace Douwes, look forward to inviting the public to the Keith Alexander exhibition “A passage in Time” running from the 3rd – 14th August at Omni Fine Art Auctioneers’ office in Newlands.
To include several unseen works will be on view, including the last work produced by the artist before his untimely death in 1998. A number of limited edition prints and original works will be for sale during the course of the show.
Keith Alexander, whose paintings have been almost exclusively inspired by the Namib Desert since 1981, has established a reputation as one of the most original and sought after painters of the Southern African Region.
Born in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, Alexander studied art at the University of Natal with a master’s degree in sculpture. His theses was on surrealism, and it was not until 1975 that he changed from sculpture to paintings.
Alexander used a rare technique of combining clear, almost photographic, realism with surreal images to create his masterpieces and is without a doubt, one of South Africa’s most important painters.
With works housed in major collections both locally and internationally, do not miss this opportunity to see works from the family’s private collection.
The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 4pm, including Saturday and Sunday, and open on Tuesday 11 August from 10am to 9pm.
