WELCOME TO WALL
WALL, founded in 2014, operates from a contemporary gallery space on the second floor of the Old Port Captain’s Building at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
Operating primarily in the secondary market, WALL presents exhibitions of exceptional images by South African artists who have succeeded in elaborating aesthetic languages that are innovative in approach to traditional and contemporary subject matter while remaining conscious of historical precedent.
Traditional and Contemporary
Whilst many of these artists are well known historical figures, the gallery also collects and present works by artists who have been overlooked or neglected by the current art market.
Appropriately contextualized, these works will prove valuable additions to a focused collection of South African art.
Conscious of the evolving South African art market the gallery also collects works by select practicing contemporary artists who have achieved notable recognition nationally and internationally.
Dorothy Kay observed that every painting is a self portrait of a kind, it can also be said that every work of art is a reflection of sorts – on one’s self / a subconscious world / the environment etc. In the exhibition ‘Upon reflection’ the common thread is the human figure.
