Hazard is thrilled present a second Solo Show by Jean Du Plessis at the Gallery.
The Artist has based himself in Johannesburg for the past 2 years and we are delighted to share this exceptional body of work, produced in his new Marshalltown Studio in the heart of Joburg CBD.
Du Plessis explains “the pictorial language is the physical trace of my artistic ego and thus the abstract gesture becomes the metaphor for my isolated searching as individual…TO PAINT NOT THE THING BUT THE EMOTIONAL EFFECT IT PROVIDES, MY INDIVIDUALISM IS THE CENTRAL PROTAGONIST IN THIS BODY OF WORK "
Du Plessis also encourages individual interpretation, despite the pieces being inspired by his personal experiences. Bold large-scale mixed media works on canvas and paper supplement new aluminum sculptural works.
