BLACK WATER (article first published : 2004-04-11)

Black Water is an evolutionary step in Neville Trickett's love affair with fragrance. Developed on his farm in the KZN midlands, the new fragrance is evocative of childhood memories of forests thick with moss and moisture. The name Black Water is reminiscent of mysterious dark streams running through decaying woodlands.

As a prelude to taking his fragrance to the marketplace, Neville enlisted the help of designer/illustrator, Richard Hart to explore the idea of Black Water visually. The result is a small exhibition at The Cupboard gallery in the Windermere Road restaurant, Home. Using a series of nudes photographed by Italian photographer, Paulo Roversi and text cut from an antique book of Turner's etchings as a starting point, Trickett and Hart have created a series of 14 montages exploring the themes of beauty, mystery, desire, vulnerability and desolation through the colour black.

The show is up until the beginning of May. The Cupboard Gallery is situated at HOME on the corner of Windermere and Innes Roads in Durban.
