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).
