Jean Du Plessis
The Idea of Constant Change
Hazard Gallery is delighted to invite you to the preview of Cape Town based artist Jean du Plessis’ first solo show in Johannesburg.The artist was born in Stellenbosch into a family well-versed in the arts. This early influence, followed by 10 years in Italy surrounded by like-minded creatives, made a deep impression, and directly informed this body of work, entitled The Idea of Constant Change. Du Plessis encourages individual interpretation, despite the pieces being inspired by personal experiences.
Bold, large-scale mixed-media works, largely monochromatic, using oil, acrylic and gypsum plaster, walk the line between order and chaos.Within his limited palette, the works have complexity and depth, offset powerfully by his spontaneous Abstract Expressionist mark-making.
The show will run from 19 May till 19 June 2016.There will be an artist’s walkabout on Sunday 22 May at 1pm.
For the private view 19 May 6-8pm please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
