Brendhan Dickerson - 'Nuclear Family'

New works by six contemporary South African artists taking widely varying approaches to art-making.

Mediums include oil paint, beeswax, bronze and wool dust, as well as the elements of fire, water and air.

In the search for the essence or the 'real' matter of life, each artist's work reflects a constant flow between inner reflection and external searching.

South African Art is recognised as being rich with world class talent, and of reflecting - seemingly compulsively - the country's historical and ongoing narrative of internal struggle.

Regi Bardavid, Penelope Stutterheime, Sandile Zulu, Brendhan Dickerson, Bonita Alice (now resident in London) and Peter van Straten have been invited to consider their work and concerns as South African art-makers outside the narrative of struggle.

By exploring beyond the physical and material and by challenging perceptions of our world there is a possible reinterpretation of what is considered to be reality. The theme is multi layered, encompassing ideas and the exploration of quantum physics, spirituality, the imagination and desire. With this in mind each artist has been invited to go Beyond Matter.
