Human Gestures, 2017 to 2018
Solo Exhibition at Grahamstown National Arts Festival
in the Trinity Hall.
From 28 June to 8 July 2018
Bretten - Anne Moolman
Bretten-Anne (BA) Moolman has spent the last two years exploring in paint the silent language of emotions spoken by the human body and will unveil her ‘Human Gestures’ series in a solo exhibition at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown from 28 June to 8 July 2018.
A world full of people and their subtle, and sometimes not-so-subtle, physical behaviours that reflect their emotions, connections and interactions is the departure point for Moolman’s ‘Human Gestures’ series, which she describes as “my attempt to translate in paint the emotion of the unspoken word that is often visible only through body language”.
In her characteristic style that blurs the boundaries between representational and abstract, Moolman evokes human forms and their subtle gestures, postures and movement, using her artist’s language to convey emotion, mood and relationships that are left up to the viewer to imagine.
