The long goodbye

Opening on Saturday 3 November 2007 at 14:00
Closing on 22 November 2007
Preview by appointment

'The long goodbye' is the title of both the exhibition and the featured new portfolio of etchings by Fiona Pole. The portfolio consists of twenty prints in a red handmade cloth-covered box. The images from the portfolio are also represented in squences, printed in groups of four on the same sheet of paper to create five larger works. Pole favours the format and creative possibilities of the print portfolio. Two earlier portfolios, '1994 - new memories - 2004' (2004) and 'In memory of Anna 1936 - 2000' (2006) will form part of the exhibition.

In her new work, Fiona Pole continues her visual exploration of childhood memories and aspects of social interaction. An ominous sense of the tenuous relationship between adult and child surfaces in subtle as well as startling ways.

Fiona Pole studied in South Africa and Paris, France, specializing in printmaking. She lives in Paris with her partner and her son.
