William Kentridge

by Kate McCrickard

by Kate McCrickard

item code: 11997

It’s not a mistake to see a shape in the cloud. That’s what it is to be alive with your eyes open: to be constantly, promiscuously, putting things together.

William Kentridge is one of the world’s leading contemporary artists. His works spans many genres – film, printmaking, books, tapestry, sculpture, and opera and theatre design – but all of these are linked back to the discipline of drawing and the immediacy of the charcoal mark. Born in Johannesburg in 1955, it is through drawing, which for Kentridge is ‘thinking aloud’, that he finds the most direct way to address ‘an art (and politics) in which optimism is kept in check and nihilism at bay’. With over a hundred illustrations, this survey by author and artist Kate McCrickard is an ideal introduction to his diverse achievements.
