About Former Mountains:
‘Former Mountains’, a group show by Bruce Mackay, Dale Lawrence, Jean de Wet & Mike Tymbios is currently on view at Salon91 in Cape Town. The artists have been selected to exhibit together based on a strong narrative quality, which is common to their individual practices, as well as for a unique & highly individualistic quality of line which is both present & signature to each of their styles. The result is a sleek & sophisticated display of drawing and print, which seamlessly combines bold expression, abstraction and moments of extremely fine as well as graphic detail, all expressed through a limited palette of red, blues and black. Each exhibiting artist has indeed taken a truly unique approach to the treatment of the subject of ‘Former Mountains’ from singular to composite multifaceted interpretations, ranging from the very literal to far-off poetic and obscure expressions…
