SHOCK TACTICS (article first published : 2005-11-20)

Shock Tactics – Necessities of a Circus is the title of an exhibition by Sue de Beer to be showcased at the Grillroom Café from mid November to the end of January.

“Creativity is the driving force in my life,” says Sue de Beer. “My work is deeply personal, fragile, thinking and feeling, knowledge and revelation. This particular body of work attempts to engage the complex dialogue between sexuality, spirituality and emotion. The many unanswered questions. I have used life drawings, my love of ballet, drama, the expression of the painted human face, and how a human face can be changed with the application of paint for the performance arts.

“I have been involved in ballet productions, backdrops and scene settings for 16 years. I have loved the expression of dance in a studio, a space that becomes a site for expressing the art of dance in a safe secure place. The fascinating experience of professional performers, choreographers, visual artists and of the curios onlookers all sharing a creative space. I love stories and anecdotes and I feel my work has a story of its own to tell.”

Sue de Beer has designed and conceived many props for ballets and costume designing. She has also spent hours turning the human face into Bohemian Monkeys or Panthers or just plain classical make-up over the years. “I have always been inspired by the human body, whatever expression it takes on for that moment, and then I love to record it and express “distilled moments in time”,” Sue adds.
