An exhibition of contemporary impressionist paintings by Niël Jonker will be on show at the Hugo Naude Art Gallery in Worcester from May 12 to June 8. According to artist and gallerist Sandra Hanekom, "Jonker has redefined SA landscape painting" through his approach that includes working in situ, and reflecting the landscape emotively.
Included is a selection of figurative bronze sculpture, among them Jonker´s recent bronze ‘Fighter on the roof’ that represents masculine issues by rendering a youthful Mandela in mid-century boxing regalia. The first in the edition was snapped up within seconds of being unveiled at KKNK in April.
The exhibition opens at 6pm on Thursday May 12 and runs until June 8, at the Hugo Naude Art Gallery, 113 Russell Street, Worcester. Tel. 023-3425802 or visit www.nieljonker.co.za
