AKRASIA: A NEW SOLO EXHIBITION OPENING BY MARLISE KEITH

Marlise Keith is known for artworks that are dark yet make you smile. Her new solo exhibition that opens next week on First Thursdays at the Worldart gallery in Cape Town will be no different. The theme of this exhibition is ‘akrasia’ an ancient Greek term referring to the lack of will that keeps us from doing what we know is good for us.”I decided to make drawings of my alarming akrasia. I scratched the surface and there they were – the very things that pause and leech my will, none of them good.” she says.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE “BOOM”! – NORMAN O’FLYNN AT THE WORLDART GALLERY.

Norman O’Flynn’s second solo exhibition at the Worldart gallery in Cape Town will open on May 5. A collection of portraits in the artist’s characteristic stylised pop art vocabulary are the focus of the show. O’Flynn’s portraiture is distinctive and contemporary. It is rendered on transparent plexi-glass layers and reads like comic book illustration, or enlarged tattoos, evoking his fascination for popular culture. The transparent plexi-glass layers generate the “flat and shiny” look he favours, tying in with the strong pop art influence.
