Art Exhibitions

Die Berg Is Geduldig

5 June 2019

Rentia Retief’s first solo exhibition in Cape Town at EBONY/CURATED draws on her continued investigation into the landscape and the constant reminder that we are just brief, insignificant visitors. Her lyrical works on paper, created ‘en plein air’ in the mountains, with the elements contributing to the mark making, entices the viewer to relive the experience of being alone in nature. By creating these drawings, often on a very large scale, she endeavours to capture a lost emotion and to draw herself closer to a natural world that is quickly disappearing.
 
 “The process of drawing my surroundings became a ritual of my awareness of my separation to nature, a dance of mortality set to the rhythm of the constants of life”.
