“We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars”
- Oscar Wilde
Deepest Darkest Contemporary Gallery opens it’s winter Group Show, ‘Constellation’ on Saturday 29 June. The show features an exciting line-up of 12 established and emerging South African artists presenting painting, drawing, sculpture, illustration, photography and mixed media works.
Gallerist Deon Redman notes: ‘Constellation’ further establishes the gallery’s focus on curating quality, accessible work across multiple art practices. Premised on the Oscar Wilde quote, ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars’, the show explores ideals of myth and legend, the vulnerability of the constant human quest for meaning, and the acquiring of abstracts as a means of defining context and formulating understanding, both personal and communal.
