REBOUND (article first published : 2001-03-5)

Opening on March 6 at the NSA Galleries at 18h00 will be an exhibition of new works by Trevor Makhoba. Titled Rebound, the exhibition runs in the Mezzanine and Park Galleries until March 25.

Trevor Makhoba is well-known for his satirical (and lyrical) paintings and Rebound is his first solo exhibition since he won the Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year Award in 1996. The exhibition reflects Makhoba’s ongoing concern with the underbelly of society, social ills and the contradictions inherent in contemporary South Africa. The works promise to be provocative and controversial as is to be expected from this highly respected artist.

Rebound shows an artist restlessly searching for a clear identity and a variety of styles and themes are evident. The title of the exhibition indicates that Makhoba is intent on reclaiming the position of pre-eminence he once enjoyed amongst the province's painters.
