A Piece of Work is a group exhibition of variations of the monotype process and other unique works on paper contributed by a selection of invited artists, collaborations with the David Krut Workshop (DKW) and DKW team members themselves. On view are works which experience the pressure of an etching press and, as a comparative, those that have not.
“Monotypes are one-of-a-kind printed images. They have been called “the painterly print” or “the printer’s painting”. Working on an unarticulated plate, the artist develops an image much like a painting or drawing”.
In this exhibition the monotype process is celebrated and investigated alongside the ‘unique work’ by presenting each of the artist’s contributions as ‘a piece of work’. This phrase can be defined as a product or creation of work but also a complicated, eccentric or unique character or something that is crazed and bizarre, yet intriguingly charming, all of which can be attributed to the creative process.
Artists include: Vincent Baloyi, Sarah Biggs, Fanie Buys, Hanien Conradie, Chad Cordeiro, Elize de Beer, Purnaa Deb, Endale Desalegn, Matthew Hindley, Meghan Allynn Johnson, Elrie Joubert, Alex Kaczmarek, Roxy Kaczmarek, Sbongiseni Khulu, Alexandra Makhlouf, Maja Maljević, Colbert Mashile, Keneilwe Makoena, Noma Ngwenya, Daniela Puccini, Nina Torr, Jacob van Schalkwyk, Diane Victor, Morne Visagie, Mary Wafer, Quinten Edward Williams, Kristen Yang and more.
The Gallery will be closed from the 15th of December 2017 to the 15th of January 2018.
