STRANGE DAYS

Thursday 12 April 2012 at 18:00
(exhibition closes 12 May)

We linger alone
Bodies confused
Memories misused
As we run from the day
To a strange night of stone
-Jim Morrison 1967


blank projects is proud to host the fourth solo exhibition of critically acclaimed painter Jan-Henri Booyens. STRANGE DAYS is a body of work created in 2012 in Pretoria that expands the abstract/landscape iconographic structures Booyens developed in his previous bodies of work, TECTONIC (2010) and THE MATT SPARKLE(2008)

.In STRANGE DAYS these structures evolve into isolated forms that vary from the severely monochrome to the exuberantly polychrome. His abstracted compositions evoke landscapes built on systems of fractal geometry, and yet they retain the spontaneity of an intuitive creation process. Booyens’ reluctance to completely undermine figurative representation adds to this body of work’s feeling of internal dissent, a conflict between the order of recognisable forms and the vitality of chaos.

Jan-Henri Booyens (b. 1980, Johannesburg) studied at the Durban Institute of Technology and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. He lives and works between Pretoria and Cape Town.
