LIGHT AND DARK (article first published : 2006-10-18)

artSPACE Durban is to host a photographic exhibition by Angela Shaw in its main gallery.

The exhibition is titled Light and Dark and has two components.

The first is titled Rembrandt Portraits. “This is a series of photographic portraits of people who are in my life or I have met on my travels,” explains Angela. “The portraits refer to Rembrandt paintings in their lighting - selected sections of illuminated face or torso emerging from shadows, darkness and muted backgrounds - and in their subject's poses, roles and mythical status such as Actor in a flat hat, Man with a Turban, Saskia as Bellona, Self portrait as the Apostle Paul, A Shipbuilder and his wife and The Jewish Bride”.

The second part of the exhibition is titled Water Portraits and this deals with a series of photographs or 'portraits' of water and its ability to mutate, facilitate, calm and stimulate.

Angela Shaw’s Light and Dark exhibition runs at artSPACE durban from October 23 to November 11. More information on 031 312 0793.
