Cavalli Gallery is pleased to present Do not go gentle into that good night, a solo exhibition by Justin Southey, opening on Sunday, 24 November, between the hours of 4 – 6 pm at the Cavalli Estate gallery.

Justin Southey’s practice explores notions of landscapes and fantastical worlds that serve as metaphors for more unquantifiable emotional and spiritual spaces.

Acting like ephemeral mirages, the artist’s ambition is to explore and capture the intertwining and transcendent quality of the unseen. Capturing momentary feelings in a visual form, these investigations are both deeply personal and also often made in response to his immediate environment.

Southey’s presentation of work at Cavalli Gallery is loosely arranged around the poetic work by Dylan Thomas. This body of work visually explores the struggle associated with change and the refrain “rage against the dying of the light” seems to reverberate the poet’s urgent unction.

Similarly, Southey’s emotional landscapes seem to echo the vibrance and tenor, with bold swathes of colour, texture and exuberant mark-making. There is a push and pull in the viewer’s experience, directing the eye and stimulating the senses.

The exhibition will open on Sunday 24th November 2019, between the hours of 4pm – 6pm, with an opening address by the gallery’s curator, Amy Lyn Eveleigh, as well as a wine service by Cavalli Wine Estate.

Gallery operation hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10h00 till 18h00.
