Lelani Ni­co­laisen– A Dif­fer­ent View

LELANI Ni­co­laisen’s paint­ings on her forth­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion will no doubt at­tract art lovers and col­lec­tors alike. She paints hu­man ac­tiv­i­ties or group gath­er­ings and her fig­ures are pre­sented against a bleak and al­most colour­less back­ground, de­pict­ing these per­sons’ lone­li­ness and dis­place­ment within the dis­or­der of our com­mu­ni­ties. Seen in this man­ner, her work is a sub­tle and sen­si­tive so­cial com­men­tary. Gallery hours 9am-5pm, Pre­to­ria Arts As­so­ci­a­tion, Nieuw Muck­leneuk, Pre­to­ria
