'Transit'

Kevin Brand at ABSA Gallery

Kevin Brand, brings his latest body of work – an engaging collection of 15 hanging pieces – to the Absa Gallery in Johannesburg.

Called 'Transit', the exhibition comprises five framed charcoal drawings, five mixed media paintings on board and five metal works on painted board. Together the pieces illustrate Brand’s continued interest in the appropriation and homogenisation of global, indigenous cultural artefacts, costume and sculpture.

He has attempted to formally mimic this issue by utilising and transforming everyday household items, sourced from discarded plastic objects and packaging materials, into conceptual works. The making of the various pieces, as  objects of desire, was an intentional focus of the exhibition.

“Kevin’s work has long been distinguished by his use of non-traditional sculptural materials to make strong but increasingly nuanced comments on aspects of South African social history and life. Transit is no different, and essentially breathes new life into otherwise useless materials. It really reflects his love for working with different materials and mediums.” - Paul Bayliss.
