FORMATION (article first published : 2008-07-30)

Due to open in the artSPACEdurban Main Gallery shortly is Formation which attempts to give the spectator insights into the psyche of four painters and their thought process in producing a work of art. Included on the show are the painters, Dee Donaldson, Grace Kotze, Anet Norval and Janet Solomon.

The unique process during the fruition of a painting is often more intriguing and substantial than a finished piece of art. So much editing, judging and refining of ideas and images can produce a work eliminated of the guttural essence of the initial passion that prompted it's creation. The show attempts to present the information and workings that get pared away along the path towards refinement.

Text, photographic documentation, workbooks and sketches are some of the preliminary ideas that will be presented along with the finished paintings, thus enabling the viewer to connect to the workings behind the painting. The show, with its varied approaches and presentations, promises to be one of layered substance and complexity.

Formation runs at artSPACEdurban from August 4 to 23. The gallery is situated in Millar Road next to the Waste Centre in Umgeni Road. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit www.artspacedurban.co.za
