Currently on show at AITY Gallery in Franschhoek is Helen van Stolk’s new intimate showcase, ‘Full of Flirt’. The show opens its doors on Saturday, September 23, 2023, and runs until October 13, 2023 at the gallery’s two venues in Franschhoek.
An enchanting collection of sensuous works
‘FULL OF FLIRT’ marks the artist’s fifth solo exhibition with AITY Gallery and is slated to be a highlight in her career. In this intimate showcase, Helen van Stolk unveils a limited collection of new works that blend her distinctive abstract style with expressive figurative elements.
Helen van Stolk writes:
‘A high-heel shoe, a sensual move, giggles with a friend,
listening eyes, invigorating waterfalls…
images that dance in my mind.
Everyday life flows into the studio experience.
The canvas is there to take on my world.
The bravery of new life phases brings surprises
and with that, I flirt with life.
This show leans into playfulness,
the sensual and present moments of joy.
In the abstracts, the highlights of cheeky colour give me a thrill, putting on a show – like a touch of red lipstick.
The portraits explore aspects of personality, a look, a feeling, something reawakened, the wilderness within.
Flirting with love and life.’
Viewers can look forward to a unique showcase of the depth of the artist’s talent and creativity. Despite its compact size, this exhibition holds great significance. The works underscore Helen van Stolk’s commitment to showcasing her art at AAF, Battersea London, in October 2023.
