ART Guide for Cape Town – 02 Mar- 08 Mar 2012

Re:SOURCE in Theme, Essence and Medium

The artworks for re:SOURCE were selected due to the impression that their creation came from a deep, authentic, original source or core. Not merely a study in light, pattern, colour or composition, it almost seems to offer a glimpse at a metaphysical source of life, energy, force or passion. On another level some of the works also refer to the depletion of resources through human over-consumption.

A 3D Interactive Group Exhibition curated by Janet Botes.
