Kalk Bay Modern is excited to introduce our upcoming exhibition titled "Sculpture and Ceramics" opening on Wednesday 4th July 2012.
The contemporary ceramic scene in South Africa is diverse, dynamic and evolving. As ceramic artists continue to further explore the distinction between sculptural/conceptual forms and functional objects through their unique oeuvres, this art form is fast gaining recognition in the art world both locally and internationally.
The gallery is proud to be featuring over 20 different South African ceramicists in this exhibition. For this entry we'll be introducing renowned and local names in the ceramic art sphere, such as ceramic artist Lisa Ringwood whose handbuilt functional ware draw inspiration from daily life and the natural world, Louise Gelderblom who coils African influenced sculptural vessels, Wilma Cruise whose interest lies in the metaphorical relationship between human and animal form, Katherine Glenday well known for her ethereal, light-infused porcelain work capturing gesture or echoing nature, Clementina van der Walt well known for her colourful and iconic functional ceramics, and Christina Bryer famous for her flawless, geometric porcelain and 3D mandalas.
