LOST/FOUND EXHIBITION PHOTO GALLERY

lost found Exhibition

The lost/found Exhibition took place at Revolution Woodstock last week Thursday. It was a huge success. Not only were there some incredible artworks exhibited, but it was also the launch of the Verb Artist Series decks by artists Daniel Ting Chong, Justin Southey, Hanno van Zyl, Jade Klara, Jaco Haasbroek and Gerhard Human. The Kraken Rum kept the social juices flowing, and Roastin’ Records kept everyone stoked with their DJing. Milkshed, the non-profit that a portion of proceeds from the exhibition will go to, were there as well, and displayed some beautiful furniture made from reclaimed wood; a children’s bicycle, a small set of table and chairs, a lamp, and some rad stationary holders for your desk. We also put out one of the new Verb DIY decks and let people draw on it. The exhibition was packed, art was appreciated and sold, and everyone had a good time.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to the exhibition opening last night! A special thanks to Simon and Candice for curating, The Kraken Rum, Roastin’ Records, Milkshed, the artists that exhibited their work, and the artists who collaborated with Verb for the Artists Series skateboard decks. We are really proud of the series.

The exhibition is still running for another week, so feel free to drop by anytime (when we’re open obviously) and browse the art.

GERHARD HUMAN INTERVIEW

Gerhard Human Click Click Bang Bang

Gerhard Human is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. He is also one of the artists who did a deck graphic for the new Verb Artists Series 2013 range, which will be here soon. We caught up with him to chat about his graphic and what went into it…

What made you decide to take on this project?

Why not? Get my own personal deck AND exhibit with some rad people!

Name 1 thing you’ve lost and 1 thing you’ve found, worth mentioning.

I lost a Traser watch in Montagu 3 years ago. It was black and had orange bits on the numbers, in case if anyone finds it… I found R20 in my back pocket a while ago! That was great.

Tell us more about your artwork. Why did you decide to do what you did? What is the story behind it?

I wanted to do a design that you can spend time looking at; something that takes you away from the surroundings you’re used to and add a sense of adventure.

You do understand that, through the execution of your artwork onto the bottom of a skateboard deck, most of the replicas of your artwork will be thrown around, and get scratched and broken in the street right? How does that make you feel?

Well, nothing stays beautiful forever. That’s the nature of life. Things deteriorate and from that comes new ideas. There’s a Buddhist practice of crafting an intricate mandala out of coloured sand, which takes hours, even days to complete. After it’s finished they destroy it and start all over again. It’s supposed to teach you about the impermanence of material things… I guess in that same way letting go of precious material things is therapeutic.

Doing a graphic to be applied onto a skateboard deck is essentially just creating an artwork for a different size and shape canvas than normal. What excites you about the idea that your artwork is going to feature on a deck as opposed to doing a regular print?

The exciting thing is the audience it will be exposed to. Doing a painting that hangs in a gallery is great but is often only seen by upperclass people who’re in the habit of buying art. Whereas, a skateboard will be used by people like me. People who LIVE a creative life.

Name 5 verbs that describe your process when you were creating your graphic.

Explore. Trance. Capture. Fixate. Trust.

Come see Gerhard’s deck first hand at the lost/found exhibition on 28 November…

THE EDITIONS SHOW OPENING PHOTOS

DSC08672

We went to the opening of The Editions Show at the Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection, 91 Kloof Street, Cape Town, last night. These are some snapshots from the opening, but they really don’t do the exhibition justice. You actually need to go there and look at the artworks yourself to fully appreciate just how good they are. We were blown away by the skill and quality of most of the work, and would highly recommend that, if you’re in Cape Town, you get your butt down there and spend some time there browsing the art. The exhibition is open until the 24th of August.

Featured artists:
Adrie Le Roux, Alice Edy, Andrew Sutherland, Annika de Korte, Ben Winfield, Bruce Mackay, Carmen Ziervogel, Caroline Mackintosh, Cassandra Leigh Johnson, Charles Haupt, Claudette Maskell, Clement de Bruin, Cynthia Edwards, Dani Loureiro, Donna Solovei, Dylan Culhane, Fred Clarke, Galia Gluckman, Gerhard Human, Hanno van Zyl, Hugh Byrne, Jade Klara, Jason de Villiers, Jay Gordon, Jono Dry, Jop Kunneke, Kirsten Sims, Louis Minnaar, Marchand, Mareliza Nel, Mieke van der Merwe, Neill Wright, Otto du Plessis, Sarah Pratt, Simon Berndt, Sinead Turnham, Ulrich Knoblauch & Zelda Weber.
