Exhibitions: Past

Secret Obsessions of the Mind - An Exhibition by Eris Silke: 25 October to 25 November 2007

"When viewing Eris Silke's work, a certain visual language is activated. The artist communicates using her own technique, providing the viewer with a conglomeration of dynamics. Silke’s personal vision of the world presents us with unique artworks, which are also informed by her background, cultural upbringing, education and creative drive. At the onset of the visual experience of her artwork, we are confronted with our own subjective emotional responses. An instant communication arises between the viewer and the artwork. If this point of connection is delayed by unawareness of the multi-faceted aspects of her artwork, the written language unlocks the enjoyment of the message".  Vicki Cruywagen
