Cape Town based photographer Gregor Röhrig documented the creative processes of Los Angeles based artist Augustine Kofie over a period of two weeks, while he worked independently and collaboratively on his artworks for the ‘Gather’ live exhibition.
The exhibition shared the works by Kofie and local artist Paul Senyol, both in their signature styles and in collaboration with each other. It was presented by The Lovell Gallery in association with Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection.
Kofie spent three weeks at The Lovell Gallery producing the show with Senyol and painted a historic racing Porsche 911 as part of his exhibition.
These are selections of Gregor’s photo essay that invites you to witness the series of events that led to the gallery being filled with artworks. He says, “Process needs to be documented, especially creative process, as this takes time, thought, practice, reiteration, and has a final outcome. When doing archival/ documentary photography, one is privy to processes which most people are not – by documenting them the journey of this creative process is archived and additional perspective is provided.”
He also let us know about the final shot, “When the Porsche was completed I asked Kofie to light-paint it whilst I illuminated it with various torches and tricks, resulting in a somewhat different type of collaborative image.”
