99 Loop showcases a solo exhibition by Marolize Southwood.
Marolize Southwood’s work stems from a fascination with the constructed reality we humans have created for ourselves. The artist explores this notion through the use of space and objects. In her work, new realities and narratives are created through unusual pairings of the two. The resulting images therefore invite viewers to explore potential meanings and links between the depicted objects.
By using familiar objects in unusual pairings, the artist aims to create a subtle absurdity in her work. Because of a reality that is slightly absurd but also familiar, the objects and their connotations reflect the very real issues we face as a species due to our technological devices. Finally, the works in ‘In All Seriousness’ are ‘unserious’ paintings about serious matters, hidden behind bright colours and painterly depictions.
Located in the heart of Cape Town’s historic centre, 99 Loop shines a spotlight on a wide range of emerging and established artistic talent.
Refreshments are served on the opening night, from 5.30pm to 8pm.
