This new exhibition is a collaboration between Jeannie Kinsler and the renowned Durban fashion designer Terrence Bray. A serendipitous meeting with Terrence led to the collaboration, which resulted in Terrence using paintings on fabric and as inspiration for his Spring/Summer 2012 collection.  Jeannie was in turn inspired by his vision and creative energy - and by seeing her work moving through fabric on bodies - to produce a new series of paintings. While her work is widely associated with images of the female form, the human head and still life – this new body of work further explores the human form fragmented by light and shadow and fabric and movement - Jeannie Kinsler


Terrence has often used his own ‘backyard’ as inspiration for his collections and so it was with the work of neighbour and artist Jeannie Kinsler. Her use of light and colour and fragmented layering provided a wonderful starting point for the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. For this exhibition Terrence wanted to take the concept one step further and has created unique paper sculptures – which will bring to the space a surreal combination of fashion and art. - Terrence Bray
