Artists in this exhibition: Gerda Scheepers


GERDA SCHEEPERS
PSYCHO SOCIO SURFACE

Opening: Thursday 30 October 2014, 18:00
(exhibition closes 29 November)

Gerda Scheepers will develop an abstract situation at the gallery using new works. By pointedly referencing genres of classical art production (painting, objects, and drawing), Scheepers moves away from dualisms such as form/content and figuration/abstraction. As hybrid media, her works focus on psychological tensions that arise between images, graphic diagrams, and language. Scheepers invariably questions the material presence of images, destabilizing them through the use of ambivalent structures, or the simultaneity of subject and background. The exhibition title alludes to both the individual psychological landscape as well as its interaction with the bigger social landscape, and an abstract surface where they are held in tension.

Gerda Scheepers (b.1979 Tzaneen, South Africa) lives and works between Cape Town and Berlin. She graduated from the Dusseldorf Art Academy in 2005 and won the Art Cologne Preis fur junge Kunst in 2006. Recent solo exhibitions include A Social Life (Of Image), Mary Mary Gallery, Glasgow (2013), Modal Approach and Accent, blank projects, Cape Town (2012) and Low and partial: Romantic Comedy, Kunstverein Nuremberg, Germany (2012). In 2012, Scheepers was awarded the Marianne-Defet- Malerei- Stipendium. Her work is represented in several major art collections, including the Danjuma and The New Church Museum collections.
