Established South African artist Heike Davies will hold her first solo exhibition since 2005 at the Barnard Gallery in Newlands, Cape Town from 2 February.
Entitled “good-night”, the show will feature bold mixed-media paintings that explore the power of female sexuality. “These portraits present women in unadulterated honesty, contrasting virtue with a common and underlying primal sense of allure. The over-riding feeling of the works is beauty and the complexity that surrounds it – the blessing and the curse of being female.”
