In the Mind of an Artist: A Celebration of Fifty Solo Exhibitions
17 September 2015 - 17 October 2015

A solo exhibition of artworks by contemporary painter André van Vuuren commemorating his 70th Birthday.
In his early work, van Vuuren explored avant-garde art movements such as Dadaism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, all of which endeavoured to explore new dimensions in art and painting, this led to the development of his own particular style that has evolved throughout his career.
After travels to Europe and specifically West Germany in the 1980s, van Vuuren was introduced to a vigorous use of colour, mood and concentrated emotion, and his paintings became more reflective, comprising of new, dramatic figurative compositions and further abstraction.
