GEOFF BRINK EXHIBITION (article first published : 2007-07-22)

Opening on July 24 on the KZNSA Gallery Arts Café Wall will be a photography exhibition by Geoff Brink titled wood for the trees.

“The use of silhouette and high contrast reflect the “black and white” thinking processes that have dominated my existence leaving little space for “mid-tones”,” explains Geoff Brink. “Working on wood for the trees has encouraged me to review certain events of my life that have contributed to this “no greys” approach to my thinking where often I can’t seem to see the “wood for the trees”. “The blackened stumps and branches become metaphor-revealing emotions and influences seen and unseen, and the “blown-out” areas representing extremity of thought.

“Recognising that my thinking processes have been shaped by the mechanics of dealing with day to day trials and tribulations, I have challenged my approach to life, leaving no space for the victim, by taking responsibility for my own thoughts which produce my reality - good or bad.

“This has allowed me to explore areas “in between” and thus shedding light on areas that were previously resident in the shadow,” he concludes.
