Anthea Delmotte at Halifax Art

Anthea Delmotte Solo Exhibition | A State of Survival:

04 – 18 April 2017

at Halifax Art, Shop 35, 4th Avenue, Between 13th and 14th Street, Parkhurst

A unique art exhibition, which focuses on buildings, dwellings and man-made structures – and analyses how they impact on human survival – will be taking place at the Halifax Art Gallery from the 4th to the 18th of April.

Contemporary Cape-based artist Anthea Delmotte has produced a series of medium to large scale oils on canvas which explore the concept of human survival and its reliance on physical structures.

The paintings in the exhibition, which is entitled “A State of Survival”, reveal different levels of basic human states of living – with crumbling dwellings and temporary structures created at Afrikaburn depicting a sense of impermanence.

Delmotte’s has become recognized for her mastery of colour. She is a full-time artist and mother of five who lives and works from the Piketberg area in the Western Cape. She has exhibited extensively in the Cape at Iziko National Gallery, Liebbrecht Gallery and Casa Labia Gallery. Her work is represented in a few collections of distinction.

The Halifax Art Gallery is situated at 35A 4th Avenue, Parkhurst and is open 9am to 4pm Tuesdays to Fridays. 9.30 am to 1pm Saturdays and Sundays. Closed Mondays and certain public holidays.
