“'What do you know about my Image Duplicator?' screams the mad whitecoat in an early work. That the machine ran like clockwork for decades. Almost anything could be transformed into a Lichtenstein - and almost nothing remains striking for long when it's been condensed into a cold, hard reductio ad absurdum. Lichtenstein was always his own best judge: 'Anti-contemplative, anti-nuance, anti-mystery, anti-movement, anti-light.' Even his self-portrait is - acutely - a mirror. An object very hard to depict (in effect, an invisible surface until something appears within it) and at which he himself excelled. But, in this case, the mirror is gleaming and empty, reflecting nothing back but itself.”

(Roy Lichtenstein's work is brilliantly perfected, yet his freeze-dried style is curiously unmoving |Whaam! but no Oomph! | Laura Cumming | The Observer | Guardian UK | Sunday 29 February 2004 )

|OOMPH| by definition| has been described as | the quality of being exciting, energetic, or sexually attractive | personal charm, magnetism | imitative sound made under exertion | decision/action | drive| dynamism |

|OOMPH| exhibition | is concerned with | energy harnessing/exploding | attack | questioning | impact | creation | destruction | attitude | human inquiry | in action |

|using blank | as a site | to explore | the relationships between | art | artist | institutions | viewer |

This exhibition aims to showcase cutting edge works by local emerging artists, featuring works by selected graduates from The Michaelis School of Fine Art and Stellenbosch University.
