Another Kind of Blue


In Association with the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, David Krut Projects is pleased to present Another Kind of Blue a group exhibition of works on paper, sculpture, painting and installation by artists who have collaborated, and are associated with David Krut Projects in Johannesburg.  As a follow up on the group show Kind of Blue (November 2019) where artists were invited to explore the colour blue and it’s kaleidoscope of shades and meanings, artists have produced works for this second edition within the same colour spectrum, adding a focus on art and the artist’s connection with earth and its elements.

For eternity, the battle between light and dark has deeply moved us through tales of fear and hope. This ageless, myth-inspiring conflict will soon cease to endure, and the blue hour will summon us to the end.

Starling’s work recontextualises the universal visual, gnostic and temporal dichotomy of the blue of the dusk sky and the bright warmth of the sun; a finite call to action highlights courses of normalisation as it pursues this contrast through the prophetic framework of a final day where long shadows summon our very last night.
