Mavis Vermaak's full-length solo album, Cape Town, is set for release in June 2014.
Mavis is also an exeptional artist and her first solo visual exhibition, Lairs of Being, opens at Black Box Gallery on 25 April.
The Cape Town-based artist explores aspects of femininity, duality and a multi-layered existence from a distinctly female perspective. Her visual language comprises mostly portraits, employing a number of original mixed-media techniques, lending an other-worldly quality to her work.
“I experimented with various techniques to generate a randomness to the emotive quality of the work. I tried to convey both the fragility and power of human emotion”, says Vermaak.
At the opening, Mavis will give a solo music performance, performing material from her upcoming electronic album, Cape Town, for the first time.
The exhibition opens at Black Box Gallery, 54 Church Street, Cape Town on Friday 25 April and closes on 6 May 2014.
