About the Exhibition
Ulriche Jantjes is an emerging artist based in Cape Town. Her work is inspired by memories and heritage and is especially interested in how memories of the past inform the way we respond to the present. Ulriche predominantly uses oil paint but often experiments with mixed media as a way to explore the tactility of a painting’s surface and the textures upon it.
the mist before the sun is an exhibition of oil paintings which engages with the precarious nature of the unknown. “the mist before the sun” also expressed as “soos mis voor die son”, is an expression describing something which has disappeared. It may also refer to a fleeting moment - the points of uncertainty before clarity.
This new body of work presents a series of reflections on times past and those to come. The paintings express the contrasts between light and dark, a play between the still of the night and the emergence of a new day.
