PENN & D’AETH (article first published : 2007-08-7)

In August, artSPACE durban will host Life IS as Complex as it Appears, a solo exhibition by Cheryl Penn, and Waiting, an exhibition of mixed media by Adrienne D’Aeth.

Cheryl Penn’s Life IS as Complex as it Appears will run in the Main Gallery. The artwork attempts to portray the complexities of life via the medium of symbols. Symbols operate in a dynamic, emotive and conceptual manner to represent information - information on a surface level, as well as embedded information.

For example, when one views a landscape, it is so much more complex than sky, land and vegetation. Beyond the seen sky are constellations, nebulas, weather and winds - so much complex information which compromises our reality - whether we are aware of it or not. It is this representational intricacy with which Penn is concerned.

Waiting will be displayed in the Middle Gallery. “We live in a world of finite resources whose allocation is decided by committees, sub-committees,” says Adrienne D’Aeth of her work which aims to explore the consequences of vacillation, procrastination and prevarication.

The exhibitions run from August 20 to September 8. artSPACE durban is in Millar Road off Umgeni Road opposite the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793.
