SMITH presents the exhibition Century’s View by Cape Town-based artist Jeanne Gaigher tomorrow October 30. This will be the artist’s third solo show with the gallery.
An industry sweetheart in only a short few years, Jeanne Gaigher is best known for her use of colour and material. Most importantly how she manipulates and plays with scrim creating haunting images.
For the first time she has extended her collection of work to include three-dimensional forms and installation. Jeanne explains, “I wanted to mess with painting and the flat surface and think of it as separated elements; to use form as a starting point and new surfaces to paint on.”
Century’s View opens at SMITH Gallery at 5:30pm on October 30 and will run until December 1.
