CITY LIGHTS …….and shadows

The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow. – Leonardo da Vinci

Contemporary artists celebrate and critique aspects of living in an urban environment today in all its complexity.  Whilst skyscrapers dominate our cities and plastic throw- away waste litters the ground, resourcefulness and creativity as well as nostalgia for a different set of values and a return to nature are examined in this show curated by Carol Brown for Stephan Welz. 

Artists represented include Wilma Cruise, Wayne Barker, Carl Roberts, Xavier Clarisse, Mbongeni Buthelezi, Sam Nhlengethwa, Lizette Chirrime, Sthenjwa Luthuli, Leeroy Jason, Roger Ballen, Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi, Sipho Ndlovu.
