Ambiguous Forms 7

$12,940.00

Description/

Twentieth Exhibitions is pleased to announce Ambiguous Forms, a series of new works by Adam Court of OKHA, based in Cape Town, South Africa. Grounded in a strong connection to nature and material process, the works present striking compositions of sand-cast alloys of aluminum, brass and copper with large slabs of carbonized stone pine and other exotic hewn and polished timbers. Rather than forcing these organic materials into predetermined forms, the natural aspects of the tree’s growth and the fluidity of molten metal contribute to their mysterious and unexpected shape, form and beauty. Movement becomes frozen, captured, crystallized in material expression. Liquid into solid, growth into stillness, each piece presents a poetic harmony of contrasts that is both organic and geometric, formed by a human participation and intuition that willingly surrenders to the forces of nature while also embracing the subtlety of its mystery.

Adam Court

designer

With a background in fine art, Adam Court, the Creative Director of OKHA, has worked in a broad range of creative formats across many genres, developing the brand into the prominent South African design label it is today. OKHA's design ethos can be summarized in Court's statement that "it is no longer good enough to create luxury for luxury's sake. Luxury must go beyond consumerism, finding its basis in the integrity of the design and truth to materials. Design is an art where personal expression, form and function can merge and should endure". OKHA's work focuses on organic materials with inherent value and character which only improve over time.
