With pre­mium bub­bly and wine in hand, in­vited guests shared an in­ti­mate evening at Alice Lane’s el­e­gantly ap­pointed Ber­man Con­tem­po­rary gallery in Sand­ton, tak­ing in the vi­brant paint­ings of French fluid artist Elsa Duault. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing beau­ti­fully plated cui­sine was pre­pared by chef Wandile Mabaso – a sub­lime pair­ing with the bold art on show.

Hosted by owner Candice Ber­man, Elsa Duault’s ex­plo­rative ex­hi­bi­tion

Spec­trum of Life left guests filled with the sense of in­fi­nite en­ergy that her art evokes. Her cir­cu­lar can­vases, with their sig­na­ture swirling colours, in­ter­est­ing tex­tures and in­tri­cate pat­terns defy all no­tions of re­straint. She de­scribes her tech­nique as molec­u­lar paint­ing. The re­sult? A dy­namic man­i­fes­ta­tion of form and colour cap­tured at a point in time.

Pa­trons were also in­tro­duced to Arti­vive, an app that brings art to life by show­ing the in­spi­ra­tion and the crafts­man­ship be­hind the cre­ation of each work.
