How art and construction impact human survival

From 4 – 18 April, the Halifax Art Gallery will hold a new art exhibition that focuses on buildings, dwellings and man-made structures and analyses how they impact human survival.
Anthea Delmotte, a contemporary Cape-based artist, has produced a series of medium to large scale oils on canvas which explore the concept of human survival and its reliance on physical structures. Different levels of basic human states of living are revealed in the paintings in the exhibition, which is entitled “A State of Survival”.

Delmotte is a full-time artist and mother of five. She works in the Piketberg area of the Western Cape and has become recognised for her mastery of colour. She has exhibited extensively in the Cape at Iziko National Gallery, Liebbrecht Gallery and Casa Labia Gallery. Her work is represented in a few collections of distinction.

The Hallifax Art Gallery is situated at 35A 4th Avenue, Parkhurst and is open 9am to 4pm Tuesdays to Fridays as well as 9.30 am to 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It is closed Mondays and certain public holidays.

For more information about the exhibition contact Dana MacFarlane on +27 (82) 784 6695 or e-mail dana@16halifaxart.co.za.
