Descripción de la Exposición

Our Art Window opens this new season with an eye-catching forest created by South African artist Gabrielle Kruger (Cape Town, 1993). With Overgrowth the artist constructs sculpted paintscapes by 'un-grounding' solid acrylic paint, simultaneously exploring the malleable nature of the plasticised material. Her work reflects on the contemporary landscape of the Anthropocene by critically exploring the mimesis and dynamic interplays between paint and plastic. Her intricate compositions consists out of dense layers of paint, and appears as if growing or mowed down by garden scissors. Kruger's studio practice and processes mirrors the ecology of the garden and gardening: a contagious space of artificial foliage; overgrowing, creeping and camouflage. Manipulating paint as plant, she peels the solidified paint off its surface and then plants it back onto her canvas bed. Her painted plants and planted paint begs the question: Is it a painting, a plant, or a landscape? Kruger's plasticised garden transmutes the sobering reality of our current state of nature into poetic painterly allegories. You are all welcome to look through our window and contemplate Gabrielle's garden. ---------- We need the tonic of wildness... At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature. Henry David Thoreau, Walden
