Comfortably Numb – artist profile

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news

Artist profile: The embroidery of Hannalie Taute shows that humour can be one of the smartest ways to communicate darkness and all its intoxicating wonders to our most hidden desires. Victims and perpetrators switch roles, characters exploit and are exploited. Ruminating on fear, dreamtime and memory, the artist dramatize our most primal urges—jealousy, revenge, greed, submission, and gluttony. By using traditional embroidery techniques unto the unconventional canvas of rubber, the artist aim to transform the familiar into the unfamiliar. Her works will be on show on the group exhibition “Comfortably numb” at Gallery 2 from 3-26 August. – Johan Conradie
