work is incredibly pleasing."
New work: Albert Coertse, "Daltonica"
is the Italian word for ‘colour bind’. Albert Coertse the master of
spatial organization. Looping rhythms, diagonals, colours and balance.
In this painting, he places two colors side by side, the contrast may
enhance them, or they may be what is called the ‘spreading effect’, they
spread into each other visually, and therefore change in the other
direction. You can see this on closer inspection, the looping ‘n’ shape
gradually getting smaller, working from the outer, to the inner quadrant
of the painting. This is known as the mutual affect of color.
3 metre Andre Stead Sculpture erected, "Flight"
is an anamorphic juxtaposition of two female figures, one standing in a
contrapposto position, arms raised above her head and the other caught
in an upward leap. Flight represents the moment of departure, the
transition between standing still and flying. The piece contains both an
active and a passive figure creating tension within the sculpture and
adding to the feeling of movement. Flight is all about moving beyond
our own limitations and taking flight in a figurative way.
