We are proud to present the first South African exhibition of the work of Arjan van Arendonk from Den Bosch in the Netherlands.

Still-life painting is central to the Dutch oeuvre and with these beautiful objects van Arendonk has used 21st century materials in a way that honours a rich tradition. He works on printed fabrics using pigmented silicone and embroidery which give the pieces a sculptural quality.

He is represented in many museum collections as well as corporate and private collections worldwide and if art is not about showing what we already are familiar with, this exhibition will surely surprise and delight the viewer
