From human forms to humourless tumours

Over the last couple of months Salerno Gallery has been privileged to showcase amazing figurative art work by a variety of talented artists. From Sal Higgens‘ strong, expressive raw forms, to Hank Spirek‘s beautifully textual and vibrant portraits, each artist’s work has offered a unique insight into the exploration of humanity and the society we live in.
After the completion of Hank Spirek’s “On the Face of it and other body parts” solo show currently running until the 24th of November, we move to Hendrik Gericke‘s new exhibition entitled “Humourless Tumours“. Hendrik draws upon his South African upbringing to look at themes such as social hierarchy, conflict, migration and culture through his organic surreal cloud-like forms.
