ARTSPACE DURBAN NEWS (article first published : 2005-06-13)

The busy artSPACE durban gallery has three exhibitions in June with Bloom and Genesis running now to be followed by Innovative Threads which opens on June 19.

Bloom is a photographic exhibition by Clinton Friedman which runs until June 18. Selected indigenous plant specimens, colour photographed in suspended white space. They are iconic - bold, individual, intriguing, graphic and absolute.

Genesis - a journey towards Sacred Geometry also runs until June 18 and is an exhibition of paintings by Gretha Quinlan. I call this work Genesis because it refers to light/colour born from darkness, says Gretha. My intent was to paint God, starting with flowers which, intuitively, became more abstract forms that evolved into sacred geometry. The exploration of God continues..."

Innovative Threads Textile Art Exhibition opens on June 19 to run until July 2.

The exhibition comprises some exceptional works by leading South African artists, where the fabric art format is used to express complex political and social issues. This is the 10th anniversary year for Innovative Threads that was started by Margie Garrett in Constantia, Cape Town.

artSPACE Durban is situated at 3 Millar Road, (off Umgeni Rd next to Waste Centre) in Stamford Hill. More information from Karen Bradtke on 031 312 0793 or visit www.artspacedurban.co.za
