ICONS FOR NSA (article first published : 2000-12-3)

The NSA’s main gallery is currently hosting a group exhibition titled Icons curated by Rick Andrew, senior lecturer in the department of graphic design at Technikon Natal.

For the purpose of this exhibition, an icon is defined as a sacred image, a totem, a symbol or a sign. Thirteen artists have been invited to produce two icons each. The participants in this exhibition are all qualified in the disciplines of design or fine art and the resulting exhibition offers some extremely interesting works.

"I chose Icons as the theme of the exhibition because icons offer interesting visual potential for the merging of symbolism with design,” says Rick Andrew. “Icons tend to be compact and loaded images and can range from traditional symbols of the sacred, to the signs, myths and symbols of contemporary media.”

The artists exhibiting are Rick Andrew, Gert Swart, Gill Andrew, Alex Gower-Jackson, Andy Mason, Frances Andrew, Kim Longhurst, Bronwyn Vaughn-Evans, Martin Burnett, Daniel Ohene-Adu, Hylton Alcock, Zane Lang and Silvi Judd.

Icons runs until December 31.
