Press: | Guy Ferrer's Re-Vival features in ‘An artist who addresses our spiritual desires' for the Sotheby's International Reality Magazine.

April 23, 2022

Sothebys select renowned painter and sculptor, Guy Ferrer, to feature in the current issue of International Realty: France | Monaco. 

The article comments on Re-Vival's quest for meaning in a world in which we are constantly challenged by the unknown - 

'International painter and sculptor, Guy Ferrer negotiates with matter, convinced that you get what you give. His approach oriented towards the symbolic quest always leaves for intuition and chance. "It is a subtle relationship, harmony is temperamental and when it is revealed in a work of art, it is always a surprise because I do not pretend to master what will emerge from my tools"'.

Daniel Naude the bovne prophecy

Press: | Daniel Naudé’s The Bovine Prophecy features in ‘African Art: South African artists making a global impact' for TheSouthAfrican.com

February 19, 2022 - Gordon Glyn-Jones

Gordon Glyn-Jones selects six exhibitions across the world to highlight how African art and culture are enriching people’s lives on an international stage.

Glyn-Jones heralds Daniel Naudé’s patience and consideration in creating The Bovine Prophecy – 

‘Over a period of ten years, Naudé travelled to the beaches of the Wild Coast, South Africa, to photograph the indigenous cattle that frequent these shores. The process called for patience, with Naudé scouting the area, waiting for a particular animal to be in just the right place at the right time. The shutter release would signal that moment when Naudé would, after careful consideration, transform the animal into an iconic image’.

Daniel Naudé’s The Bovine Prophecy features in ‘African Art: South African artists making a global impact’ for TheSouthAfrican.

Self Addressed

Press: | Teresa Kutala Firmino’s work included in 'Self-Addressed' exhibition curated by Kehinde Wiley at Deitch Gallery, Los Angeles

November 6, 2021

During November 2021 Jeffrey Deitch and Black Rock Senegal present Self-Addressed, an exhibition of self-portraits by contemporary African artists curated by American artist, Kehinde Wiley. For this landmark exhibition, Wiley invited a selection of contemporary African artists living throughout the world to each produce a self-portrait. Together these portraits present a new exploration of identity, perception, and self-regard within the global stage through the lens of figuration, exploring notions of perspective, authorship and control within acts of expression that directly address the self. The exhibition of self-portraits offers an examination of the myth of the monolithic ‘Africa’ and an exploration of contemporary artists’ visual definitions of what it means to be ‘African’ or ‘of Africa.’

Teresa Kutala Firmino’s self-portrait The Imagined Self was selected to be included in this exhibition. Her portrait is concerned with the life-changing event she recently underwent with the premature birth of her first child, the physical changes to her body and the psychological impact of becoming a mother.

PRESS: Guy Ferrer | New exhibition opens in France | July - October 2021

July 12, 2021

Sculptor and painter, Guy Ferrer is a humanist at heart, fascinated by the range of possibilities of existing and past cultures.

In a new exhibition in Perpignan, France, Ferrer gives us his ethereal vision of the deep nature of man. Our insatiable quest for hedonism and materiality is confronted with an innate need to see further and higher in another sphere which touches the divine.

The exhibition, entitled De la matière à l'esprit (From Matter to Spirit), celebrates the multidisciplinary nature of Ferrer’s practice and is presented across three locations - large paintings at the Contemporary Art Centre of the City of Perpignan, bronze sculpture at the Hyacinthe Rigaud Art Museum in the vestibule of the Perpignan Town Hall, and drawings at the Castang Art Project gallery. The exhibition continues until October 2021.
