EARTH, LIGHT AND SPIRIT (article first published : 2007-09-29)

An exhibition of works by Durban-based artists Maggie Strachan, Lara Mellon and Roz Cryer is running at artSPACE durban until October 13.

The three artists work together regularly in Maggie Strachan's Botanic Gardens studio, sharing ideas, feedback, support and encouragement from each other.

"We are each, in our individual ways, inspired by our perceptions of the Earth, by the way it is transformed by Light and Shadow, and by the Spirit which infuses it," agree the artists.

Maggie's work explores the ambiguous relationship between that which seems structured and that which seems shrouded in shadow.

Lara's paintings are inspired through the search for the essence of things, the spirit of a place or a person, and are characterised by a spirituality expressed in marks of movement and light that reveal the image.
