The AVA Gallery in partnership with Spier presents ‘Nothing New Under The Sun’, a solo exhibition by Catherine Ocholla.
About the exhibition:
While Catherine Ocholla is chiefly known for her expressionistic portraits, political satire paintings and for her curatorial endeavors, Nothing New Under the Sun shows a completely new and unexpected side to this versatile and accomplished artist.
The exhibition consists of a series of paintings of the sky, showing in realistic detail images of clouds, with only the faintest trace of a contextualizing landscape in places. Ocholla considers the world above us, ‚ÄúTracing shapes in the sky is common practice in childhood, but as adults we are inclined to view the world in more abstract terms.”¬† The artist¬†reflects on the nature of the¬†everyday as she sees in her skyscapes deconstructed shapes of things to come and things that have been, in tagging her moods, thoughts, reflections and illusions – ‚ÄúMy own veritable Sky News.‚ÄĚ
Opening on 4 June¬†2012 at 18:00.
Closing on 29 June 2012 at 13:00.
