SUNSETS – Jacob van Schalkwyk

Nests of Salt

ON VIEW: 17 September  – 22 October  2016

RECEPTION: Saturday 17 September, 11am

David Krut Projects is pleased to present Jacob van Schalkwyk’s solo exhibition, SUNSETS, a series of 6 drawings in lithographic ink on paper. The exhibition is Van Schalkwyk’s first with David Krut Projects, and runs from 17 September – 22 October 2016 at the Newlands project space in the Montebello Design Centre.

The presentation is economical in scale; the works themselves are extravagant in terms of colour and texture, prompting a re-imagining of the term “drawing”. The works are made up of layer upon layer of lithographic ink that has been thickly applied and then left to dry flat, which results in the surface of the ink forming into complex ripple and crease patterns as the viscose liquid contracts. The works are immersive meditations on the meaning of drawing, signifying a scrutiny of the thought processes to which Van Schalkwyk subjects his practice as a painter.

Please join us for a glass of Stellar Organics sparkling wine at the opening event on Saturday 17 September, 11am.

David Krut Projects will also be presenting Jacob van Schalkwyk’s work at the Joburg Art Fair from 9 – 11 September. Please visit us at Booth #04, Sandton Convention Centre.
