Cape Town based artist and interior designer Marie-Louise Koen opens her latest solo show ‘I am you’ on June 28 at Imbizo Gallery Ballito.
This exhibition is a collection of her work which explores the nature of woman through portraiture and female form.
‘I am you’ represents the unity of all woman as one, of stripping back to our natural selves represented by select pieces from previous collaborative and solo exhibitions namely Naked Art and Unbecoming along with some of her newer work.
This collection shows the simplistic beauty which lies in the unifying nature of woman and more literally the unifying feministic themes throughout her work to date .
As an activist for feminism and gender equality Marie-Louise through her female subject matter, uses her artwork to evoke thought, emotion and connection to this theme in a response to the ongoing gender inequality issues which are so often societal norms.
I am You will be on show at Imbizo Gallery, shop 7A Ballito Lifestyle Centre, Ballito until August 2018.
