Scholnick to present “landscapes of the mind” at the Irma Stern

07 October 2002
ACCLAIMED landscape painter Olivia Scholnick will hold her fourth solo exhibition at the UCT Irma Stern Museum from November 6-23.

The new works take the theme of her last show, Metamorphosis of a landscape, even further, pushing the boundaries between landscape painting and abstraction. The artist magnifies fragments of landscape, turning them into what she describes as “abstracted landscapes of the mind”.

“The paintings resonate with vibrant, vigorously applied colour and pictorial elements are confidently reduced to simplified gestures and shapes,” said assistant curator Megan Tjasink. The artist will also pay homage to the moonflower in an exquisite series of drawings.

The artist has exhibited at home and abroad over the past two decades. “Her works can be found in a number of public collections and are sought-after both locally and internationally,” Tjasink added. All works will be for sale.
