An exhibition with a difference at Head Interiors

At Head Interiors we believe that art is an essential feature of the spaces we design. We are equally passionate about shining the spotlight on promising new artistic talents. That is why, for a limited period, we have opened up our Hyde Park showroom to allow one Africa’s most exciting new talents, Greatjoy Ndlovu, to present his latest body of works titled “Somewhere in South Africa” here.

The evocative collection, an extension of “The Path of Greatjoy” series, represents an emotionally raw exploration of contemporary social issues produced in the Johannesburg based artist’s distinctive, post expressionistic style and are offset by our range of contemporary furnishings and designs.

“The thematic approach for this show came about from the idea of expressing myself out of my comfort zone, delivering a fresh perspective on the subject matter,” explains Greatjoy.

While continuing his focus on portraiture and figurative themes, the expansive pieces in oils and acrylics sees the introduction of colour and female subjects, enabling the viewer to gain insight into Greatjoy’s thoughts while provoking dialogue around the weighty subject matter.

Not only will visitors gain clarity as to how artworks can live in a home setting, but “Somewhere in South Africa” illustrates the complex aesthetic and emotional ways in which art and interiors are intertwined.

Michael Harrison, Head Interiors co-founder, explains that the exhibition reveals how art can uplift and complete a space.

“Details are what define the interior of a home, and we have long understood how paramount art is to instil joy and personality into a space. The sheer complexity of Greatjoy’s works command attention, and by placing his work in this environ allows art patrons (who are ultimately also home owners) to understand how these works can live within the intimacy of a home,” says Michael.

The exhibition also reflects our long history of supporting emerging artists.

Since inception in 1980, Head Interiors has consistently commissioned artists and gallerists both in South Africa and abroad to imbue their artist vision on the projects which form part of our extensive portfolio of residential and corporate clients.

“I have always wished to bring intimacy and connection between art and décor,” says Greatjoy. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to grab a chance and make it possible for me and my art lovers. And what is particularly exciting is working with Michael and the team at Head Interiors who are such great supporters of the arts.”

Somewhere in South Africa” runs until Saturday November 10th at Head Interiors. The exhibition can be viewed during showroom opening times from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Fridays and Saturdays from 9am to 1.30pm.

About

Greatjoy
Ndlovo

Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Greatjoy works from August House studios in Johannesburg.

The artist is steadily rising into prominence both within South Africa and internationally for his unique, post expressionist style.

Earlier this year he released his first book, The Path to Greatjoy which was written by Ntsikelelo Mzinbomvu and which captures the stories behind his art.
