Mary-Rose Hendrikse (b 1963) completed her Batchelor of fine arts at the university of South Africa in 1998 and has gone on to exhibit nationally and internationally. Hendrikse was one of the top twelve finalists in the Winsor and Newton Worldwide Millennium painting competition and twice finalist for the Brett Kebble awards. Hendrikse recent body of paintings entitled MOSTLY PORTRAITS will employ the Main Gallery. This body of work reflects an ongoing preoccupation with the human face, its corporeal and psychological expressions. Hendrikse embraces the inherently volatile language of oil paint and rebels against the urge to subdue it as is often seen in traditional portraiture
Catherine Price's ceramic installation A000001-A825491 fills the Long gallery. Price (b 1968) completed her Batchelor of Fine Art at Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2006. This body of work was informed by a visit to an abattoir in 2005. Price started working instinctively juxtaposing cattle hair and bones with white clay formed into hand basins, pouring bowls and soap dishes. The impact of the work lies in its ability to seduce and repulse the viewer.
Paul Painting has always found the full nude a powerful, primal icon, more so when stripped of artifice and innuendo, any hint of eroticism pared down to matter of fact objectivity. (b 1974) he studied graphic design at Wits Technikon an embarked on a full time painting career in 2006 the fruits of which form his first Solo exhibition in the AVA Artsstrip.
