William Kentridge: Studio Life Series

For William Kentridge, COVID-19 lockdown was an opportunity to re-examine his own artistic practice and the very nature of the creative process. Kentridge has dedicated himself to making a series of films called Studio Life focusing on the place of production, confinement and sanctuary for an artist: the studio. A series of photogravure images, each directly connected to a film, is being created simultaneously in collaboration with David Krut Workshop.

William Kentridge: Studio Life Gravures collaboration

Jillian Ross Print and David Krut Projects is pleased to present a new body of work through an exciting collaboration between William Kentridge, Master Printer Jillian Ross and the David Krut Workshop, together with photogravure experts, Steven Dixon in Edmonton, Canada and Zhané Warren in Cape Town, South Africa.

Stephen Hobbs – A Short Life with Bungalow Bliss

David Krut Projects is pleased to present A Short Life with Bungalow Bliss, a solo exhibition by Stephen Hobbs. The exhibition includes new monotypes, editioned works, myriad mixed media ‘box’ works, and a series of Plexi-glass assemblages. A significant departure from his work of previous years, the introduction of electric, jarring colours in the works presented reflect on some of the prevalent themes: states of anxiety and disorientation of both a global and domestic kind.

Mandlenkosi Mavengere

Forces of Ambition is an online exhibition of a body of work that depicts individuals who leave their familiar homes and territories, searching for better fortunes in larger cities and foreign countries. Mavengere’s works highlight the necessity of paper in the form of his signature hand-carved ‘Gondruala’ (a name derived from Gondwana) linocut bank notes, often used as backdrops for the subjects in his works. This fictitious currency stands for “the uncompromised environment of dwelling.”

Mbali Tshabalala

In 2021 the David Krut Projects invited artist and curator Mbali Tshabalala into the David Krut Workshop to collaborate on a series of unique works on paper. Working closely with printer Sbongiseni Khulu, Tshabalala created two edition variations using a range of techniques and materials, including paper lithography, linocut, black tea, chine colle and paper embossing.
