Franschhoek Wine Valley

Phillemon Hlungwani presents twin exhibitions at Grande Provence & Circa gallery

“From Giyani to Alexandra – the journey continued”, an exhibition by Phillemon Hlungwani consisting of monumental charcoal and pastel drawings and a series of etchings, opens on Sunday, 6 March at The Gallery at Grande Provence in Franschhoek, running concurrently with a mirror exhibition at Circa Gallery in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

“Phillemon Hlungwani is one of South Africa’s most celebrated and sought after artists with a burgeoning international reputation, which is unusual for such a comparatively young artist,” notes Trent Read, director of The Gallery at Grande Provence and curator of the exhibition.

Hlungwani has been working for the last two years on an extraordinary body of work that focuses on the people and landscape of his village in Limpopo and that of Alexandra Township where he moved to as a young adult.

“This is an exceptionally powerful and beautiful exhibition by perhaps our finest draughtsman ever,” adds Read.

Phillemon Hlungwani’s work forms part of private and public collections worldwide, including the Irma Stern Museum (UCT), Norman Borlaug Institute for International Culture (Texas), Rand Merchant Bank, The South African Reserve Bank, Standard Bank Gallery and the UNISA Art collection. His art education includes a sojourn in New York awarded by the Ampersand foundation in 2009, and to date he has exhibited his work locally and in London.

Open from 10h00 to 18h00 daily, The Gallery at Grande Provence will feature “From Giyani to Alexandra – the journey continued” from Sunday, 6 March at 10h00, until Monday, 28 March. Angels Tears wine will be served at the opening
