It is no small task converting etchings into prints –  let alone human-sized woodcuts – which makes the experience of Brett Murray’s latest exhibition, The Devil is in the Detail, that much more inspiring. Recognising the challenges this process presents, and the extreme detail in the result is remarkable.

It was the Goodman Gallery in Cape Town, where DECO saw the latest collection of Brett Murray’s work Again and Again – another amusing, potentially offensive and powerful exhibition touching on South Africa’s current democracy, and the tragedy and comedy that goes along with. As the viewer your thoughts will be captured, you will find something to question and every now and then you may find yourself drifting between being entertained and facing a sad reality.

The mixed media sculptures, installations, etchings and canvases are compelling, so for the works to be converted into prints is not only impressive but quite exciting too. Pencil it in and head down to Warren Editions in Cape Town for a treat of a day.
