Divergence is a group exhibition curated by Andries Fourie, exploring the artistic strategies of eight artists who work in different ways and investigate a variety of subjects, but also share an affinity for elegance, technical skill and design.
The photographs, paintings, drawings and prints of Hong Chun Zhang, Susan Rochester, Nathan Lewis, Analee Fuentes, Tallmadge Doyle, Leah Wilson, Kirsten Furlong and Frank Miller show us that conceptually-driven art can also be visually sophisticated and beautiful: a balanced marriage of form and content.
