Event Description

This extensive exhibition of about 140 works featuring sculptures and etchings by Gordon Froud and paintings by Lance Friedlande will be shown in the Reservoir at Oliewenhuis Art Museum from 14 April - 29 May 2011.

 

The exhibition will be opened by local artist and Planet Pixl owner, Markus Steinmann at 19:00 on Thursday, 14 April 2011. The artists will present a walkabout of the exhibition at 10:00 on Friday, 15 April 2011. 

 

Gordon Froud’s artworks comprise four bodies of inter-related sculptures that use the repetition of forms and objects in various configurations to construct meaning around the human condition, particularly with regard to DNA, babies, genetics, bacteria, viruses and self portraits. Froud has been actively involved in the South African and international art world as artist, educator, curator and through galleries for the last 25 years. He has exhibited on hundreds of solo and group shows in South Africa and overseas and has served on many arts committees throughout South Africa. He has judged many of the important art competitions from local to national level in South Africa. He graduated with a Masters degree in Sculpture from the University of Johannesburg in 2009 and continues to run the Sculpture Department at the University. He has taught throughout his career at school and tertiary level in South Africa and in London. Froud directed the Gordart Gallery in Johannesburg from 2003 to 2009 where he showcased the work of new, up and coming artists.
 

 

Lance Friedlande’s paintings examine the human condition through a series of portraits (some observed and some invented), landscapes and environments with figures and animals. His methodology moves from an abstract construction of space and composition into figurative and landscape works. Friedlande has painted and drawn since the age of 7.  He has worked on and off in the business world to finance his creativity.  He is now a full time artist.

Artists who have had a major influence in his work include Matisse, Monet, Bonnard, Scott, De Kooning, Bacon and Diebinkorn.

The artist has also had the privilege of personal teaching from Kenneth Bakker, Bernadine Biden, Bill Ainslie and Greg Kerr.

The exhibition PLAYOFF calibrates the individuality of the creative process, highlighting similarities and differences between the activities practiced by both artists to produce their work. Similarities include: using creativity to resolve self generated problems, the use of words to stimulate content, an evolutionary process in the method, and the practice of setting up an ongoing dialogue between the artist and the work which influences the outline. Also important for both artists is finding joy in the creative activity resulting at times in playfulness in the process as well as in the completed artwork.

 

In spite of these and other process similarities, the works of the two artists remain very different and offer a duality or Play-off against each other that makes the exhibition work well as an interesting two person show.
