May 11, 2019

Blessing Ngobeni in collaboration with Legate Lithography Editions (LL Edition) has recently participated in the Venice Biennale. The exhibition entitled 'Ubuntuism Re-enchanted', curated by Ruzy Rusike, draws inspiration from the poem 'The Rise of Shaka' written by Mazisi Kunene.

Kunene's poem toys with the effect of absence and presence, where excess of the latter suffocates and the former piques interest. Ngobeni draws inspiration from the dichotomy of nature and urbanisation. This exhibition is currently on display until the 4 November 2019.

'There is No Time Like the Present' is a large-scale, site-specific sculpture made by Rina Stutzer for the Mall of Africa in Midrand.
 
The sculptures, at a height of 5.5m, represent the two faces of Africa: the line sculpture represents an Africa rooted in tradition; the bare bones of a continent that holds us all together. The second sculpture, built from mirror-finish stainless steel, allows us to see the wealth of opportunity and the inherent potential that lies within all of us.

GUY FERRER: FEU SACRÉ (SACRED FIRE) at Everard Read Johannesburg

October 16, 2018

“The sacred fire is the irrepressible and permanent need to keep working in my studio, every single day, to the point of feeling guilty when for one reason or another I have to stop. The studio is my favorite place of life, the place where I feel anything is possible to live the adventures of form and color, order and chaos, transcendence. And to experience some truths revealed by the work, on myself, on the nature of the world and the great mystery that surrounds everything, on aesthetics or geometry or beauty, and always in connection with the dears absents, the ones I call my invisibles-still-acting."

Guy Ferrer is represented by Everard Read London.

VIDEO: Lionel Smit: Faces of Identity at Everard Read London

February 15, 2017

Lionel Smit: Faces of Identity at Everard Read London, 24 February - 25 March

This exhibition comes to Everard Read London following Lionel Smit’s acclaimed solo exhibition at the Didrichsen Art Museum in Helsinki where it was seen by more than 10 000 visitors.

Faces of Identity is a powerful body of work that explores themes of identity through portraiture on canvas and bronze deconstructions. With its ubiquity but also its uniqueness, the human face offers an endless source of study. Smit’s work accentuates facial characteristics through bold swathes of colour and brush techniques, highly-textured bronzes and vivid patinas which result in the arresting work, often of monumental proportions, for which he is renowned.

Here we find Bell, a long time collaborator with South African legends Robert Hodgins and William Kentridge, at her most introspective best, contemplating what it is to practice art in a far flung corner of South Africa as an outsider from the global often circuitous and incestuous art dialogue which allows her to bring her own unique vision to the conversation.

Scrimgeour’s table settings intrigue and fascinate, juxtaposing fragile and precious

curios with commonplace objects, exquisitely rendered. Rich in symbolism, her

work is reminiscent of still life paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, while the

use of bird’s-eye perspective creates a contemporary context for a

very traditional genre.

VIDEO: Nigel Mullins- 21st Century Talismans at Everard Read London

October 25, 2016

"I want to present my paintings as superstitious objects with bogus protective powers to bend reality in our favour. My paintings offer somehow to help you. 'Buy you time.' Or 'Reduce insignificance.’ Or 'Guarantee Afterlife.’ The squishy bodily qualities of paint, thick gestures, and sometimes outright messy application, are ideal to evoke a low-tech, talismanic object or fetish and our chaotic and often absurd strategies for controlling the vagaries of chance and guaranteeing a bright future."

Dylan Lewis and Everard Read London in the Financial Times

October 17, 2016 - Jonathan Foyle

Dylan Lewis's oversized wildlife sculptures reflect the vastness of South African Landscapes by Jonathan Foyle. Published in the Finincial Times on 15 October 2016.

 

"South African sculptor Dylan Lewis is forging the evolution of bronze. He was raised in a landscape of red soils rich in copper. His country offers some of the earliest evidence of man, such as the Cradle of Humankind, a Unesco world heritage site near Johannesburg. Here, hunters lived in caves, some of which contain bulbous, tumbling limestone stalactites — natural sculptures directly expressive of primeval forces, wrought through base material."

John Meyer: Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II

August 11, 2016

John Meyer, a leading South African artist who is represented by Everard Read Galleries, was recently commissioned to paint Queen Elizabeth II. With his usual attention to detail (and one eye on the historical narrative). Meyer, mindful of her 90th birthday, chose to conjure an image of her 69 years ago as a young princess, riding on a beach in South Africa in 1947, in what must have been a rare moment of unbridled freedom for the young woman who was to become the world’s oldest reigning monarch, as well as Britain's longest-lived.

Queen Elizabeth II, during her 64 year reign, is the most portrayed human in recorded history, by no lesser artists than Lucian Freud and Andy Warhol. Meyer's remarkable portrayal adds to this tradition. One can only imagine how this invocation of a time so utterly different from the present must have been received. It is hoped that this unique painting will find its way to one of her special homes.

Alessandro Papetti at Everard Read London - A Conversation with the artits

May 4, 2016 - Pia Capelli

[The painter’s studio in Milan, a winter’s afternoon. The rain is pouring on the glass roof.]

Pia Capelli: This is a turning point in your work. While in your most recent exhibition, “La pelle attraverso,” you focused on the border between the Self and the world, here you have “come back,” showing landscapes that are closer to mental spaces. I know that these works are the result of a long period of transformation. What is changing in your work?

Alessandro Papetti: I used to work on motionless things, finite thoughts: I would use my way of painting, my quick gestures, to animate the object and give it a sense of movement and speed. Now, instead, I’m working on the flow of my thoughts as they come to me, when the idea is being conceived. This has a great deal to do with memory, which usually offers images of objects that are complete and finished. Anticipating memory is impossible, I know, but it is as if over these last few months of work all I had to do was try to steal milliseconds to be able to paint the moment when an idea, a thought, is born. It was not a rational attempt; it was the need to follow, or anticipate, the flow of my thoughts.
