Experience the light of the Lowveld at local gallery

"Suddennes" by Andrew Hamlet.

A debut solo exhibition by the artist Andrew Hamlet opens at the White River Gallery at Casterbridge at 12:00 on Saturday April 14.

In “A Study of Light”, Hamlet explores aspects of the landscape genre through a dialogue of dark and light, cold and warmth, distance and closeness, uncertainty and hope.

Captivated by a series of visits to the Lowveld, the artist was inspired to paint aspects of his journey through the Schoemanskloof Valley into Mbombela and beyond. Noting that the light in the Lowveld possesses a unique quality, especially when the sun is close to the horizon, Hamlet captures the ethereal liquidity of first and last light and its impact on the landscape.

Hamlet juxtaposes strong, sweeping brush strokes to depict massive granite monoliths with rapid and smaller brush dabs to reveal the richness of our vegetation in a dance of landscape poetry. All works are presented as oils on canvas, ranging from small to large in scale.

The exhibition will be opened by Johan Myburg, renowned South African art writer and curator. He has served as the curator for Klein Karoo National Arts Festival from 2009 to 2011. He is also one of the few bilingual art writers.

Myburg will serve as curator for an exhibition on landscapes to be presented at Innibos this year, where Hamlet’s work will be included.

The exhibition concludes on Sunday May 5.
