‘Fish Eagle’ by Stephen Rautenbach

New Artists: Stephen Rautenbach

Stephen Rautenbach is a South African bronze sculptor, we first met a few years ago whilst stomping around Stellenbosch and he quickly got me into one of his studios. I immediately fell in love with his work, the immaculate detailing of each bronze piece is just mind blowing! He really brings the animals to life both in the way the sculptures look and feel, highly textured you can almost sense the movement of the animals coat and the roughness of the ground on which they stand.

  He has built up quite the reputation in South Africa, not just creating bronzing, but also teaching his skill to others. We are very excited to be have his works in Gallery and we hope you like it to.

Check out some of his pieces below and if you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact myself or Daniel at the Gallery.

The Simple Power of Black and White

bw-art

‘The Milliner’s Workshop’ by Pablo Picasso

What is it about monochrome? It never seems to go out of fashion, it never ages and it never fails to capture the imagination.

One of the best exhibitions I ever had the pleasure of visiting was the ‘Picasso Black and White’ held at the Guggenheim in New York back in November 2012.  The work was displayed beautifully and with the building itself a gleaming white edifice, contrasting elegantly alongside Picasso’s creations.

The one thing I can recall most clearly was an assertion made by the artist that colour weakens, Pablo Picasso purged it from his work in order to highlight the formal structure and autonomy of form inherent in his art.

It is perhaps this simplicity and clarity that draws the viewer in, offering an element of creativity to the viewer that may not other wise exist. There is an untapped excitement in the ability to add colours and fill spaces with the mind creating your own subjective meaning to each piece that would otherwise be coloured in for you.

It would not be unfair to say that as a result black and white pieces tend to have a timeless appeal that allow them to adapt to a changing world around them. fitting into new moulds whilst still resonating with a notion of the moment in which they were created to capture.

 Take a peak at some of the black and white pieces we have in the Gallery below for a little inspiration.

Original Artwork: Oil on  box canvas
Price: £1,295
No deposit, 10 equal monthly instalments of just £129.50

New Artist: Clare Ferguson-Walker

We’ve got a brand new artist coming into the gallery, Clare creates bronze sculptures using her own personal experiences of the human condition to inspire her surreal fantasy like, image creations.

For her art is a passive, silent way of breaking into people’s minds and hearts. The work comes directly from her imagination, that raw conduit between the sub-conscious and what we loosely describe as reality, which of course is only a matter of perception anyway…

Please view her striking images below and for more information please feel free to contact the gallery for more information.

“King Midas and his Touch”

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin, Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:17″ x H:16″ x D:7″
£2250 or 12 monthly instalments of just £187.50 (interest free) 

Inspired by the classic tale, this piece looks at the notion of greed and how it can destroy us and those around us. When the desire for riches comes before love, we have become nothing but slaves to our own neediness. Only when we loose what is often taken for granted will we see that money cant love us in return.

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin, Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:27″ x H:22″ x D:15″
Price: £3000 or 18 monthly instalments of £166 (Interest Free)

Through self reflection the artist found that childhood conditioning arising from society via her parents and school has created a kind of mechanical system inside. A set of rules that have made individuals almost robotic in their responses.

“Centaur”

Medium: Hand Painted Bronze Resin
Dimensions: W:17″ x H:16″ x D:5″
Price: £1450 or 10 monthly instalments of £145 (Interest Free)

A creature combining the physicality and strength of a horse and the delicate beauty of a woman. Totally at one with its on nature, self reliant and unquestioning.

“I see this piece as a representation of a psychological state that I aspire to achieve. I was born in the year of the horse and have always felt akin to them in some way, I hate being boxed in and a desire for freedom is very much at my core”.

“The Lonely King”

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:9″ H:16″ D:9″
Price: £1950 or 10 monthly instalments of £195 (Interest Free)

This archetypal character represents the potential loneliness associated with power and the responsibility therein. For the artist the king is not a king but her father, the most influential masculine presence in her and in most peoples lives. Most comfortable in his own company, deeply unsure of how to share himself emotional he has made himself an island.
