July Exhibition | A Reflection of Us

5 Jul 2014
Lisette constantly experiments with media and subject matter. Her compulsion to recycle pushes her towards mixed media. The contrasts and contradictions of Cape Town and its people provide the inspiration for her work. 
"The present and the past meet by some divine intervention called art . A reflection of us. I work on found surfaces from 1860s Government Gazette pages to scrap pieces of wood. The surface dictates the subject: the people, their body language, unique style and characters all develop into a perfect match."

 - Lisette Forsyth 

From 3 July until  the 19th of July we've got  Lisette's exhibition "A Reflection of Us" on the wall at the gallery. The opening was a great success and several artworks are already sold.

Lisette's work is often experimental, sometimes incorporating graphic design, photography and screen printing. Some of the works shown as part of the exhibition, such as Ike Jumping, entails the use of spray paint to create a semi-silhouette images of  an energetic or athletic person jumping.

With the artworks for A Reflection of Us,  Lisette's aim to share the delight in the seemingly ordinary comes to life in the figurative pieces that reflect on our every lives and the people we encounter. For her, Cape Town and its people provide interesting contradictions and contrasts to work from - making every day an inspiration . The need to revel and reflect life's beauty drives the artist to create. 

While her work is experimental and not specifically political, it does give us a glimpse into our society. The work "The Suspects: Accessories" are created on and inspired by criminal law notes.
