PARALLEL VIBRATIONS

MAIN GALLERY
9 MARCH – 26 MAY | OPENING 3.30 PM SATURDAY 16 MARCH
When journeys of friendship move along parallel streams of creativity, unique and enriching vibrations emerge. This exhibition takes these parallel vibrations as its theme.
Savaad Felich
My abstract collage employs material sourced from fashion and home lifestyle magazines. As slicing, matching and juxtaposition occurs and images and colours interact in new ways, abstracted impressions flow free from the vertical linear planes. The completed works, which contain inspirational quotes from my own reading, reflect the reality of vibrational relationships at work.
Wilani van Wyk-Smit
Parallel lines move alongside each other, one guiding, one following. And just like that they can switch roles, shift prominence, change trajectory, exchange the lead. Lines in parallel are not a reflection of each other. They never touch when you look at them up close; they are pulling and pushing, while connected to each other with an invisible bond.

SELECTED WORKS FROM

THE OPEN SPACE

WINERY VIEWING GALLERY
27 JANUARY — 3 MARCH
The Open Space describes the formless dimension that precedes all form. It refers to an emptiness or void that contains all possibilities. Physicists estimate that emptiness makes up 80 percent of the universe and that 99.9 percent of the human body is empty space, while in Buddhism emptiness is the ultimate nature of reality. To be empty of independent existence is to ‘open space’ inside the Zen circle of enlightenment, an instrumental practice in the creation of Lascelles latest body of work. These paintings arise from ‘space consciousness’, and as such they trace a path from stillness and presence toward the fundamental essence beneath form. Mountain ranges beneath waves and gorges enshrouded in mist suggest the ephemeral passage of objects through cycles of creation and decay, while the patterned and textured surfaces echo quantum fields that themselves embody limitless possibilities.
