GFI gallery in Gqeberha welcomes art exhibition of virtuoso Diane Victor

Building on her captivating exhibition last year at Spier Wine Farm in the Western Cape, renowned contemporary artist Diane Victor’s rousing pieces from the Spier collection are now at the GFI gallery in the vibrant city of Gqeberha, Eastern Cape, from 7 February to 17 April 2024.

Victor has been at the forefront of the South African and international art scene for many years, exploring the dark side of South African society with subtlety and complexity. From corruption and social inequalities, to the human condition and more specifically the situation of women, Victor implicitly questions the vulnerability of life.

Her graphic works, almost exclusively in black and white, are woven through with references to the history of art and mythology. They reveal her extraordinary mastery of printmaking and drawing techniques, and her constant exploration of new media such as ash and candle soot.

Diary details:

Date: 7 February to 17 April 2024 Opening times: Weekdays 10h00–16h00, Saturdays 10h00–13h00

Venue: GFI art gallery, 30 Park Drive, St George’s Park, Gqeberha
