Combining Two Different Forms Of Art

Our New Collaboration with Lizamore & Associates!

During recent photo shoots, we began to notice that some of our clients incorporated works of art into their open plan kitchen living spaces. Often, as designers, we will include images of paintings or sculptures into our display photographs as a way of indicating where cupboards will not be placed. This resulted in us realizing that art has its own particular presence and is essential in allowing you to fully personalize your space and express your own creativity and style. It makes perfect sense that we should be celebrating the fine arts as we continue to uphold the art of kitchen design. A kitchen should be ergonomic and functional, but the beauty of a kitchen
is important too.
 
In an effort to celebrate these two very different but perfectly complimentary art forms, we have collaborated with the sought after art gallery, Lizamore & Associates, to ensure that the best contemporary art by South African artists find their way into your kitchen. We’ll be featuring Lizamore’s artists on our pages and incorporate their work into our photography, enabling you to experience a perfectly selected artwork in your living space and supporting some of finest local artists.

OF THEE I SING

Summer Online Exhibition 2020 - Phase 2

by LIZAMORE & ASSOCIATES

Of Thee I sing! Our summer online exhibition at Lizamore has started with Phase I of three phases. Artists represented on this online exhibition are artists that we have worked with in the past as well as new artists we are introducing to our market.

 

We are excited about this exhibition, which will be followed by Phase II and III and will run until the end of January 2021. Phase II will be available by the end of next week, with Phase III two weeks thereafter.

 

We were all enlightened during lockdown, how nature and the environment erupted, with birds and ducks reappearing in the canals of Venice, penquins in the streets of Hout Bay, wild animals in major cities; and the guilt we felt about man taking over the world with no consideration of these creatures who first appeared on earth. We are entering a changed and new world with no one really knowing what to expect and how things will change.

 

See how relevant the interpretations are by some of our artists represented on this exhibition. How do you see the new world after lockdown?

 
 

Twenty six selected artists from our online exhibition, Of Thee I Sing!, will be part of the physical exhibition this December and January at the gallery. 

Of Thee I Sing! asks the question of what artists have learnt over months of self-reflection during lockdown and how they see the future.
