Gloei of Groei | Adéle du Plessis | Still life Painting

Groei or Gloei is part Quarantine Draw Series. A series of paintings made by contemporary South African artist Adéle du Plessis. During March and April 2020, Adéle sketched every day with her daughter artist Nicole Sciarone in Delft.

 

In Gloei we see a small plant cut and placed into an old jam jar filled with water. The jam jar, has grooves and edges, that catches the light differently.

 

From this drawing exercise, Adéle painted a series of paintings. She plays with Plato's philosophy about art and Mimesis. Plato didn't like art. He argued that it does not belong to an intellectual society. Art was too far removed from reality to be of any value. Adéle has played with her sketches and Plato's ideas about art in her paintings.
