THE HUNT (article first published : 2001-04-12)

Well-known South African sculptor, Maureen Quin will present a series of works at the NSA Gallery that has been eight years in the making: 12 bronzes that are thematically linked and termed The Hunt Series.

A work titled The Hunter stemmed from a desire to play around with, and use, the streamlined shapes of the cheetah. Being commissioned to do a life-size study of a cheetah with her cubs Quin states that in the preliminary research which entailed studying ad sketching cheetahs, I became fascinated by their movements, family life and feline grace.

She further states, I have tried to express, in sculptural form, the horror I feel for mans inhumanity to his fellow man compounded with the wanton destruction of our environment in the name of development, greed, power and self gratification.

Maureen Quin has had more than 40 solo exhibitions, and participated in 20 group exhibitions. She has numerous public and private commissions to her credit and is represented in most major collections in South Africa. She and her husband live in Alexandria, Eastern Cape Province, where she works. Many of her works are displayed in her spacious garden and modern viewing room, which is open to the public.

The exhibition will be opened by Hannah Lurie on April 17 at 18h00. It will run until May 6.
