The Gallery at Grande Provence is proud to present a solo exhibition of select works from 2013 to 2023 by Krisjan Rossouw.

Posted on Fri February 10, 2023.

Over the last decade, South African fine art photographer Krisjan Rossouw has established himself globally for his unmistakably distinct approach to contemporary portraiture that celebrates the beauty, strength and resilience of Africa and her people. Self-taught, with no formal art or photographic study, Rossouw developed his unique chiaroscurist photographic technique from continued experimentation with non-traditional light sources, mixing and layering luminance and temperature to capture his striking models from the African continent and diaspora.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Rossouw’s practice since his debut solo exhibition, Dark Paradise in 2013. His body of work has since grown to include eight photographic projects and collaborations, solo and group exhibitions, and art fairs worldwide.

About Time opening Saturday 24 September 2022 at the Gallery at Grande Provence

Posted on Mon September 19, 2022.

The Gallery at Grande Provence is proud to present a group exhibition featuring Roxandra Dardagan Britz, Mona Craven, Estelle Marais, Sharlé Matthews, Diane McLean, Carl Roberts & André Roodt

Six of the artists studied fine art together at Rhodes University. Professor Marais was their first-year teacher. 1981, their year of enrolment, was an “interesting” time. Art was evolving from a formal orientation towards a socially relevant view and the political climate was fraught with the tensions of a civil war. 40 years have passed, each artist has explored and advanced their unique and different approach. Now, they are established and have works in collections throughout South Africa and across the world.
Recently, these artists wondered what homogeneity remains and what diversity has developed from their common origin. To explore this, the artists decided that it was time to exhibit together once again.

Posted on Wed February 16, 2022.

‘Chronicles of the Soul’ a solo exhibition by Hannah Yason opening Saturday 26 February 2022 at the Gallery at Grande Provence.

This solo exhibition celebrates art transcending cultures and the equalization of all humans by the soul. Yason’s paintings narrate emotionally charged stories of selected poignant experiences from her life. Working with an original technique that combines oil paint and sand on canvas, her ‘sculpturesque’ paintings portray a vision of awareness and spirituality.

Hannah gained a BA Honours degree in Fine Art from The University of Reading, UK (2002) and has since taken part in group shows in both the UK and South Africa. She has work in private collections in South Africa, France, Germany and the UK.
