Two Exhibitions: Fred Clarke and Kilmany-Jo Liversage

The Times by Fred Clarke
 
“The Times” reflects and comments on a world of elastic facts, harsh extremities, and kaleidoscopic paradigms coexisting at once.
 
Humanity is increasingly inundated with information of all kinds; true, false or otherwise. We collectively navigate fake and real news, fringe science, celebrity pulp, and a myriad of other variables in today’s equation.
 
As technology evolves, sci-fi is fast becoming ‘sci-fact’, spawning imminent cosmic voyages and “black mirror” prophecies. Our meaning on Earth is in rapid flux, with strange destinations on the horizon.
 
Clarke unpacks an allegorical, expressionistic and abstracted visual response to the world as it is, balancing news bulletins with dreamtime, and South Africa with the Omniverse.
 
“The Times” explores various visual mediums, largely focused on spray paint on glass, paper and canvas.
 
Chroma18 by Kilmany-Jo Liversage
 
This latest body of work by Liversage presents work created in the period leading up to the month of June (07) of 2018(18). Liversage’s collection features her signature highly textured, bright and brazen colour applications, and use of urban materials related to street art and urban environments. Her female subjects are meant to challenge the viewer and are represented in such a way as to represent a subtle form of activism on gender based issues in South Africa. CHROMA718 represents the contemporary female subject as a celebrated, powerful being. Her subject matter is sourced from social media platforms, thus referencing today’s youth and their interests, and contemporary pop culture.
