My World - My Life - 07 - 15 November 2012

ALPHEN ESTATE - PRIVATE PREVIEW 18H30 NOVEMBER 7, 2012
Our most powerful senses are the visual and the tactile and Beatrix Bosch’s work offers a unique approach to celebrating the aesthetic of her medium in its afterlife.

It is not enough to just ‘look’ at Beatrix Bosch’s creations… The textured quality of her work, the application, composition and rich, vital colours merge into artworks that are mesmerising, drawing one in to see beyond the shapes to the intangible spirit and character of the leather itself.

Time is a master at creating texture, weaving ribbons of lines and wrinkles that tell their own story and Bosch is a gifted narrator interlinking a kaleidoscope of artworks by bringing the leather to life with her unique and individual approach that takes us on a journey of discovery into the unknown.

By combining textures and colours, Beatrix Bosch is able to accentuate subtle nuances, sometimes using the imperfections in the leather to highlight the unique qualities of the piece. She is bold in her approach and her willingness to experiment with colour, composition and style results in a powerful, yet intrinsically evocative requiem to her medium.

“When working with the leather, I am constantly reminded of the importance of colour in conveying my message. Colour is as much a ‘raw material’, an indispensable tool in the creation process, without colour it is impossible to illuminate the tactile nature of my medium,” says Bosch.

Her artworks represent a constant state of evolution – her medium is not only physically demanding but challenging from the creative aspect too. Beatrix says that her skill lies in selecting the pieces that will work together, maximising the inherent qualities of the piece and bringing it together in a design that celebrates the beauty of the leather itself. Although leather is one of the most versatile materials available to an artist, working with such an unforgiving medium requires a truly masterful skill-set to produce a work of art from what is basically an animal hide.

By exploring new techniques in dyeing, composition and content, her unique leather artworks represent a tribute to her pioneering leather art in South Africa with artworks that have brought her international acclaim for over four decades.


Don’t miss an opportunity for a tactile experience that will leave you in awe of the medium and the artist who has so lovingly wrought the skins into artworks that will endure for generations to come.
