In a harmonious and powerful exhibition, four artists from different backgrounds and cultures present their recent works, each finding strong symbolism in the word ‘Crucial’, from the concern over environmental, animal welfare and socio-political issues to the crucial decisions we make daily.


Setlamorago Mashilo presents his strong sculptures and paintings, developing from a blend of introspection and commentary drawn from his Sepedi upbringing, African folktales and sculptural works exploring historical narratives.

Susan Proctor-Hume shows a series of collages produced using recycled material and influenced by the mass media we are bombarded with daily. She interprets her lived experiences as well as inner workings of her subconscious into her work.

Hilda Kleyn’s paintings are abstracted and constructed through multiple layers of delicately applied paint. Acrylic and oil paint is combined to create dramatic, expressive compositions influenced by her move to Frankfurt.

Stephanie Proctor is showing a series of prints, interested by politics of plants, conservation, decoloniality as well as indigenous knowledge around plants and nature. Proctor’s art has a strong social message as she addresses a range of injustices.

The artists will be present in the gallery and are happy to give more information about their work.

During the opening hours but also during the private viewing on Thursday the 12th of October from 5 till 8 PM they welcome art lovers and collectors to have a look!
