ORGANIC STRUCTURES (article first published : 2006-03-4)

Organic structures is the title of an exhibition by South Coast artist Everett Duarte to take place at the KZNSA Gallery.

Born in Tzaneen, artist Everett Duarte was exposed to art at an early age. His father Izidro Duarte has a major influence in what Everett produces today. He moved to the South Coast to join his father in a new framing and painting business in 2003, an experience which led him becoming a full-time artist in 2004.

His process of working is initially subconscious, sublimated emotive decisions that develop into an essence of place and time. The artist is technically concerned with the formal qualities of colour, pattern and texture that are explored in gestural movements of twists splatters and drags achieving vitality with the paint.

Often the result is a semi-abstract painting with strong brush marks that creates an illusion of depth, provoking an emotional response. The artist will be at the exhibition on the opening night.

Organic Structures opens at 18h00 on March 7 at the KZNSA Mezzanine Gallery to run until March 26. More information from KZNSA curator Nathi Gumede on 031 277 1703 or 082 220 0368 or visit www.kznsagallery.co.za
