Pandora’s Sisters: Diane Victor’s New Editons at DKW

11th April 2008 by

Diane Victor’s work is usually described as social commentary, but what critics often miss, perhaps because her strong imagery repels the squeamish or faint-hearted before they can get a proper look, is its humour, either in the form of biting satire or revealed in the artist’s wry self-deprecation. Since the seriousness of Victor’s work is […]

DKW Update Aug 2006 – Nov 2006 PART FIVE

13th November 2006 by

Paul Stopforth left South Africa during troubled times in the 1980s and moved to Boston where he taught fine art at Harvard University until his retirement earlier this year. Over the years he has held solo exhibitions in the US but he admits that the response to a recent exhibition was less satisfying than he had hoped. In 2003 he held a solo exhibition at our New York space, David Krut Projects, that dealt with everyday objects found on Robben Island. His drawings of loud speakers, trash cans, bars of soap, blankets and boundary walls seemed ordinary but flowed out of the highly politicised reality surrounding Robben Island and did not seem to resonate with American audiences. He also worked on a series of lithographs on the same subject, each image including a variety of different textures in the background.

David Koloane and Alastair Whitton in studio

9th May 2006 by

Alastair Whitton was also working in the studio last week, though his work could not be more different to David’s. Alastair is from Cape Town and he and I have been in regular contact since the latter part of last year. Alastair works in a very minimilist way, creating textures and patterns through line work and the re-working of images.

Cyril Coetzee in Studio

31st March 2006 by

The last time Cyril Coetzee was in the workshop he decided he wanted to reinforce certain lines in his existing image with a second etch in the acid bath. Once a second proof of the image was pulled Cyril decided to add a second aquatint plate for tonal areas. Tim prepared the plate for Cyril and he immediately began covering areas of the plate with a protective layer of hardground.
