Simultaneous Exhibitions: ‘Africa Re-Imagined: A Six Year Exploration’ by Geoff Weedon & ‘Intimacy of Things’ by Olivia Pendergast, May 28 – Jun. 19 2022 @ One Off Contemporary Gallery

One Off is delighted to present Geoff Weedon’s first solo show in Kenya; ‘Africa Re-Imagined’. Weedon first visited Africa six years ago and the impact of the wildlife and its people is clear because he has painted little else since, returning again and again for inspiration and reference. This show is a reflection of six years playful exploration which has expressed itself in different styles and formed distinct series, two of which are displayed in this exhibition. 

Meanwhile, opening simultaneously is ‘Intimacy of things’, an exhibition of oil paintings by one of our most popular artists, Olivia Pendergast.  In her latest works, Pendergast places her subjects in their places of work, surrounded by the objects which are of significance in their lives.  In each painting, Pendergast uses hands, rather than eyes as her tool of expression, along with her signature re-applied pencil lines.  The show marks a shift in direction for the artist which will delight her audience.

As Kenyans everywhere recover from an extremely divisive election season, what better way to regain your equilibrium and peace of mind than to come to One Off to enjoy the beautiful landscape oil paintings of Olivia Pendergast? Each image a gorgeous rendition of a different part of Kenya, each work portraying the countryside we all know and love so much.

Frank Whalley in the East African recently commented that Pendergast’s landscapes are ‘beautifully painted’ and have a ‘sensitive fluidity’. Please come and enjoy the jewel like quality of these paintings for yourself.

Exhibition: On this Plane of Life by Peter Elungat & Olivia Pendergast, Sept. 1 -24 2014 @ One Off Gallery

Exhibition featuring recent works by Peter Elungat and Olivia Pendergast at One Off Gallery.

Peter Elungat
Private View: Sunday, 31 August
Time: from 11am to 5pm.

The exhibition runs until 24 September 2014.
Venue: One Off Gallery, # 16 Roselyn

About

Peter Elungat needs little introduction.
Since his first solo show managed by One Off was opened by Rob Burnet in a ground floor shop in the Yaya Centre in the late 90s, he has enjoyed enormous recognition domestically and has earned the accolade of being one of the highest selling artists in Kenya. One of the few artsists to truly cross the cultural divide, Elungat attracts collectors in equal numbers from all ethnic backgrounds and walks of life.

Following a residency at Kuona Trust, Elungat started his career painting tiny figurative forms on equivalently small squares of canvas. Subsequently, his works have grown in scale in tandem with his audience. Current canvases are now some of the largest works in the gallery characterized by his portrayal of mostly single female forms after the style of some of the major renaissance painters. A spiritual essence pervades these works.

In contrast, Olivia Pendergast is little known in Kenya.
A graduate of a five year BFA program at Columbus College of Art and Design she went on to work in Los Angeles for a further five years in the film industry as a conceptual designer. Since 2007 she has been based out of Seattle and has lived and painted in Malawi, Haiti, Ethiopia and Bangladesh. Most recently she has worked in Nairobi. The exhibition at One Off will focus on portraits she has made of the people of Kawangwari.

‘The paintings that I create are a direct reflection of the experience I am having. I simply see something that creates movement …By being present I am aware of hundreds of times a day when this movement occurs and as a way to express excitement, I am moved to paint’.

Diverse as these two painters are in background and experience, they share a common palette and also a fascination with the exploration of proportion as it relates to the human form.
