26 May Elmarie Lategan + Jeanne Hugo exhibition
You are cordially invited to attend the opening evening of the
following art exhibition:
‘Kortverhale’ is the first collaborative exhibition by Cape Town
painters Jeanne Hugo and Elmarie Lategan. Lategan has had great
success with previous exhibitions at the AVA, Winchester mansions,
Art.B and Gerhard Cloete galleries. Hugo has worked with performance,
photographic and illustrative art but recently chose oil paint as her drug of
Both Lategan and Hugo are Stellenbosch Fine Art graduates.
Inspired by early Expressionism as well as Surrealism the paintings
depict not objective
reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that objects
and events inspire. This is accomplished through distortion,
exaggeration, primitivism, fantasy and through the vivid, jarring,
violent, or dynamic application of formal elements.
The show starts at 6pm, June 1st 2010 at the Wessel Snyman Creative,
Bree Street in Cape Town.
