” This book started as a personal project in summer 2007, and was soon published from a Japanese bookstore “Utrecht”. It’s a flipbook, but rather than seeing animation, it creates a 3D rainbow in your hand. Since being published it has been featured on Japanese TV, Newspapers, major news & blogsites like yahoo news, coolhunting and fffffound. This book won this years NY ADC silver cube” – Masashi Kawamura

Daniel Naudé

appaloosa

In Daniel Naudé‘s first solo show, he presents a world that appears to be a fairy tale, or a fictional place: We see a donkey with the grace of a race horse. Next to an impossibly beautiful rainbow, a white mule almost turns into a unicorn. The hills and veld that Naudé invites us to traverse are filled with wonderful creatures, each more proud, perfect, and present than the next. But small details in the photographs reveal that Naudé’s world is, in fact, our own. The donkey is tied by its leg. The Nguni bull pees. The unicorn-like mule wears red rope a wire collar. Humans view other species largely in utilitarian terms. Some animals, like the cows and the donkey, we rely on for sustenance, or labour. Others, like the tricolour Nguni cow and the perfectly symmetrically patterned goat, are prized for their appearance. Others still, like the feral dogs that first captured Naude’s attention, live largely parallel existences to their human neighbours (though some are used to hunt). In Naudé’s essay, however, each animal is treated as an end in itself. The donkey is as important as the prize Nguni. Naudé reveals a sense of awe and reverence for nature that has eroded, or at least been reduced to a recreational activity, in our urban existences. To create a sense of hightened perception, he relentlessly pulls his images apart and puts them back together in a digital process until, in his words, he ‘sees on his screen what he saw out there.’ (Continue reading…)

Holly Farrell

ken-striped-tie

Holly Farrell is a self-taught painter who first picked up a palette and brush at the age of 28 (she is now in her late-40s). Her first works were paintings of retro kitchen cupboard objects — drinking glasses, juice pitchers, candy dishes — or objects like simple wooden chairs and rain boots. Rendered with enough painterly flourishes so they weren’t completely photorealist, these paintings were charming and pretty accomplished from a technical perspective, but it felt like the most one could say about them was that they were very nicely done.

Heather Goodchild

Heather Goodchild’s work strives to uncover and explore stories and symbols with universal resonance. Focussing on textiles as a medium, she creates felt portraits, rugs, quilts, silk screened prints, soft sculpture, and dioramas. Much of the inspiration for her techniques and approach comes from folk art and traditional music. The naive and anonymous quality of these deceptively simple works provides a window into shared human experiences. The stories and symbols of organized religions and societies also strongly influence her work; the rituals and literature of Freemasonry and Christianity and their codified expressions of collective ideals and mythologies fascinate her especially. Through the installations and objects that she creates, Goodchild engages the viewer in stories that are at once mysterious and hauntingly familiar.
