“WALL presents works by South African artists who built the foundation for future aesthetic developments in the South African art.”
A special focus is the smaller sculptural productions of Edoardo Villa which demonstrates Villa’s ability to create monumentality in small scale. Exemplary sculptures by contemporaries Ezrom Legae, Sydney Kumalo and Lucas Sithole will compliment this display. Select paintings by Cecil Skotnes, Robert Hodgins, Peter Clarke and Christo Coetzee will provide the backdrop to the sculpture emphasizing stylistic individualities yet showing significant congruities in content and subject matter shared by these artists. The human figure is the predominant subject in this selection of works. The expressive possibility available in the diverse media used are vigorously exploited by each of these artists developing a distinctive visual vocabulary of form, texture and colour unique to their time and location in South Africa.
