Highway Mail - 12 October 2007
EARTH, Light and Spirit, an exhibition of works by Durban-based artists Maggie Strachan, Lara Mellon and Roz Cryer, recently opened at artSPACE Durban and will run until Saturday 13 October
The three artists work together regularly sharing ideas, feedback, support and encouragement from each other.
"We are each, in our individual ways, inspired by our perceptions of the Earth, by the way it is transformed by Light and Shadow, and by the Spirit which infuses it." said Lara Mellon.
Lara's paintings are inspired through the search for the essence of things, the spirit of a place or a person, and are characterised by a spirituality expressed in marks of movement and light that reveal the image
Roz's paintings capture moments in nature where light and shadow are the primary focus. On another level the paintings aim to evoke the deep and healing relationship between humanity and wilderness
Maggies work explores the ambiguous relationship between that which seems structured and that which seems shrouded in shadow. Gallery hours are 10am until 4pm daily and Saturdays 10am till 4pm.
