Entry 33: Diane Victor – Ashes to Ashes and Smoke to Dust

Diane Victor – Ashes to Ashes and Smoke to Dust

For more information check out  http://www.davidkrutpublishing.com/

I went to the closing of Diane Victor’s exhibition Ashes to Ashes and Smoke to Dust at the UJ Gallery.

The works range in size and medium from drawings on fabriano paper to smoke drawings on glass. The piece that I was completely enthralled by was the Butcher at the altar. In which 8 panels of glass were suspended from the ceiling. Each panel had an individual image worked in with smoke and ash.

After seeing this exhibition I just wanted to start making art again.

Victor is known for her heavy subject matter which invites the viewer to review and escape in the works, “The profundity of the image and subtle nuance and humour expertly embedded within the chaos and sophisticated draughtsmanship of her work deserves further engagement and dialogue. This exhibition is not about walking into the Gallery and merely looking: it is about continuing interaction, education and intervention” (David Krut Publishing).

    Hi,… I am doing a research dissertation on Diane Victor and this exhibition in particular, do you by any chance have more photo’s of the exhibition ??? I am particualry interestred in the smoke drawings, but “seeing” the actual layout of this exhibition might illuminate some discourses set up through the installation,… if you do, could you please post/email more pictures? or thoughts on the exhibition space/ layout. I was unable to travel to SA on time to see the exhibition, and saw it as it was being taken down. Tnx L

    There’s no doubt that that you ought to write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people do not speak about such subjects. To the next! All the best!!
