One-night exhibition with Lady Skollie
Laura Windvogel (aka Lady Skollie) believes that sex sells. Combining the traditional medium of water colours and child-like mark making of crayons, she explores the subject matter of genitals, relationships and gender roles in a playful, yet direct manner.
“I love the way a doodle painting of a penis can make people giggle like schoolgirls. No matter the lack of realism. It’s something we should embrace; the fact is that life is short and therefore hiding things or pretending that certain images offend us is a waste of time. I’m very direct and I guess I get off on the reaction a mere genital painting evokes,” she says.
Windvogel is currently showing two murals at the Michael Stevenson Gallery (Cape Town) and working toward a solo show in July 2015 and other various collaborations in textile design.
Artworks by this University of Cape Town Arts and language graduate will be on display for one night only as she uses the Worldart gallery as a makeshift studio. She will also be hosting her weekly Kiss and Tell with Lady Skollie radio show on Assembly Radio from the gallery.
