Order and Division by Gina Heyer

22 August-3 October 2012. This exhibition, entitled Order and Division, features a series of photorealistic oil paintings by the South African artist Gina Heyer.

This collection explores the concept that a building shaped by human hands ends up shaping the minds of those who use it. Through cold, hard and repetitive architectural facades, it analyses the skeleton of a school building, taking viewers on a journey through empty corridors, bathrooms and expansive landings. Heyer focuses on order, discipline and symmetry, which provide a certain amount of safety in the structural design and principles of the public institution. Her aim is to capture the way these surfaces and spaces feel, the way they smell, the way they negotiate interactions with the other and the way these types of public spaces are collectively remembered.
