Plane is the upcoming group show at Deepest Darkest featuring the works of Arlene Amaler-Raviv, Dave Robertson, Mark Rautenbach and byron Masixole eksteen
Cape Town based artists Arlene Amaler-Raviv, Dave Robertson, Mark Ruatenbach and byron Masixole eksteen interrogate the surface through their various approaches to the two dimensional and three dimensional surface.
Arlene Amaler-Raviv resites paintings on paper from 1997, painted directly on the pages of the The Hamlyn’s Children History of the World (1935). These new iterations see the artist adding a further view into the works by painting directly onto the framed glass with her signature fluid oil application. (See photo above)
Dave Roberstson’s paintings are often very layered and occupy an intuitive space that exists beyond the formation of recognisable images. They are often created over long periods, which can sometimes extend to a few years.
For Mark Rautenbach, the works use a plane as a location for things to interact with each other. In this case colour, texture, sewing thread, tone, paper and paint combine in ways to bring about something that didn’t exist before.
byron Masixole eksteen, showing a suite of painting along with scupltural works defines his paintings as a voguer of shape and depth aiming the subconscious to explore, translate and render an understanding in its own capacity (yet they are still simulated). Whereas the sculptures are a venerable attempt to depict shape; venerable as I am literally digging in deeper via the action of sculpting.
