‘Well this work here at the Everard Read gallery absolutely sings with life and you can hear the music, you can see the figures dancing to it and moving to it, the colour just pops out at you’.Read More >>

Okuro uses Fleeting Moment, an artwork made for Hartslief’s recent exhibition with Everard Read London, Shadows and Reflections, to discuss the decisions we make in the quiet moments of the everyday –
‘I love the quiet, dimly lit painting “Fleeting Moment”, by contemporary South African artist Sasha Hartslief. She employs deft brushstrokes in muted tones to create atmospheres where light and shadow play off one another, tenderly capturing moments plucked from daily life. Moments that remind us of the inherent complexity of living with ourselves. Her characters are rarely aware of a viewer, immersed in their own worlds, but worlds any of us might easily slip into — because they feel like fragments from the simple but layered business of being human.
In “Fleeting Moment”, a slim, solitary woman stands in a pocket of a softly lit room with her back to us. Everything is painted in soft hues of brown, yellow and green. The woman’s hands are on her waist and her head is slightly bent. Her posture suggests a certain disquiet. Pausing to stand in the middle of the room reveals she’s lost in thought about something. Whatever it is, it is likely to require a decision from her on what to say or do next.’Read More >>

Having walked through Bailey’s Let there be Light at Boughton House with the artist, Forbes travel and culture contributor, Joanne Shurvell writes –
‘The works at Boughton House and in the London gallery are eclectic, both in themes and materials used, which include enamel, oil and house paint and varnishes. The paintings show figures within imaginary landscapes yet there is a strong link to Beezy’s South African heritage with near extinct African animals in the paintings and a common motif is spheres representing fallen angels. These fallen angels can be seen as representative of the country Beezy came from as well as of those whose actions have contributed to the problems of our planet as a whole. These fallen angels are transformed into bronze sculptural works reminiscent of Alberto Giacometti, including the upside down angel sculpture on the lawn, in a brilliant Yves Klein blue. Beezy Bailey describes his art as “balm for a mad world” and we can all use some of that.’Read More >>
