Art: One in a million

By philip
9 July 2013

Artists have been challenged by the gallery to create anew / submit a masterpiece that they believe to be a truly once-off original, successful, archetypal art work, which answers to the theme and title phrase ‘One in a Million’.

The artists have really let their imaginations run wild with interpretations ranging from ideas around authenticity, rarity, preciousness, love, the night sky, fleeting moments, intricacy, endangered species, statistics & formulas, to the use of sparkly materials / precious metals within their work. Viewers will be presented with what could essentially be a one-in-a-million opportunity to collect a seminal work by an emerging artist.

A heady brief, but fortunately most participants don’t take it too seriously, preferring to present tongue-in-cheek responses that recognise our post modern condition, while still celebrating that something bright, burning and unique we each carry within us.

Featured Artists include: Dylan Culhane, Jop Kunneke, Katrin Coetzer, Galia Gluckman, Emalie Bingham, Johke, Julia Anastasopoulos, Ambra Gambale of Ambra Fine Jewellery, Hugh Byrne, Kirsten Beets, Elsabé Milandri, Dani Loureiro, Lorenzo Nassimbeni, Mariëtte Bergh, Mieke van der Merwe, Gabby Raaff, Jono Dry, Swain Hoogervorst, Adriaan Diedericks, Leigh Tuckniss, Lucie Demoyencourt, Elize Vossgatter, Caroline Mackintosh, Katrine Brink Claassens, Candace di Talamo, Lizelle Kruger, Ceri Louise Müller, Mia Chaplin, Gerhard Human, Bruce Mackay, Friday Jibu, Nicola de Jager, Claudette Maskell, Chris Auret, Paul Senyol & Jade Waller.
