ARTSPACE EXHIBITIONS (article first published : 2006-10-23)

These are Light and Dark and Post No Bill.

In the Main Gallery, Light and Dark by Angela Shaw comprises two parts.

Rembrandt Portraits is a series of photographic portraits of people who are in Angela's life or have met on her travels. 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 e.g. - 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.

Water Portraits is a series of photographs or 'portraits' of water and its ability to mutate, facilitate, calm and stimulate.

In the Middle Gallery is Post No Bill, an exhibition by Jeaniene Dekker that comprise eclectic portraits captured in Ghana, Togo, Benin, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Transkei. The images are projections of colour, texture, and soul. The pictures have a subtle, journalistic feel and scrape the lives of traders, mothers, daughters, wrestlers, and reed dancers. Jeaniene's inspiration comes from the vibrant, impulsive, raw expression of native African culture.

Jeaniene Dekker is a scenic painter in the film industry by profession and a part-time multi-media artist. Digital photography has allowed her the freedom to capture a fusion of painting and film. This exhibition is dedicated to the women of Africa.
