SASHA HARTSLIEF: Patterns of Light
Dec 3 – Dec 31, 2020
Everard Read CIRCA is proud to present Patterns of Light, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Sasha Hartslief at Everard Read Cape Town.
What interests me most in my painting practice is the emotive quality of light. People, scenes and objects cannot be viewed devoid of the element of light, but a scene viewed in bright sunlight will convey a completely different feeling to the viewer to that same scene viewed by candlelight or lamplight. In a way, light is a subtle language that we all perceive intuitively, and our entire sense of the world is dictated by the quality of light, and this is what has always fascinated me in the scenes which I construct and record. Like music, it is pre-verbal, and totally void of any intellectual constructs. It is something that I feel that I am just beginning to discover and appreciate, and I think I will always feel that way.
