PRESS RELEASE

RANDOM GRAPHICS FROM PRIVATE COLLECTIONS – WILLIAM KENTRIDGE

OPENING SHOW AT 34FineArt, BUCHANAN SQUARE, WOODSTOCK 

23 March – 17 April 2010

34FineArt’s brand new gallery space at Buchanan Square in Woodstock launches with an extraordinary exhibition of William Kentridge graphic works entitled RANDOM GRAPHICS FROM PRIVATE COLLECTIONS.

Almost five years ago, FROM PRIVATE COLLECTIONS, an exhibition of Kentridge works, proved to be a great success at our old venue in Long Street. It is repeated here, updated, with the focus on graphic work. 

William Kentridge is one of South Africa’s widest known and most prolific contemporary artists. Combining innovative technical devices with his primary expressive mode of drawing and erasing, he puts on grand theatre and opera productions. His subject matter, typically derived from 20th century modernist sources, is transformed, intensified and personalized into deeply introspective narratives touching a central nerve in most onlookers. Apart from his drawing, he is a consummate maker of etchings and prints, as this exhibition attests. Rarely seen together this collection is sure to inspire aspirant collectors.

World spotlights will be trained on William Kentridge in 2010, when his interpretation of The Nose, a 1930 opera by Shostakovich based on an 1836 Russian short story by Gogol, opens at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. 

The recent economic recession is history – there has never been a better time than now for owning an important artwork and making a great art investment!
