Surface/ Subtext

Everard Read is proud to present Surface / Subtext a small group exhibition featuring Emalie Bingham, Barbara Wildenboer, Bronwyn Lace, Ricky Burnett, Zwelethu Machepha, Thania Petersen and Elize Vossgatter.

 The exhibition will run from the 18th August until the 11th September 2016.  

The State of being temporarily permanent (2016) oil paint, ink, pigment, chalk pastel, jik and staples on canvas, 1000mm x 1465mm Elize Vossgatter’s mixed media narratives consider painting as both surfaces and surface based ‘objects’. Here the essential symbology of the images is balanced by the inherent and critical actions of layering, covering and exposing of the canvas and its stretcher. As the figurative conversations are materialized, the artist removes segments of information and exaggerates others. The duplicity of ‘noise’ under the surface allows the audience to imagine, as they aim to consider the bigger questions of displacement and the notions of a ‘foreign body’ that Vossgatter is posing. written by Emma van der Merwe
