Ruann Coleman: Certain Lengths
From May 27 to July 1, 2017, SMAC Gallery will present Certain Lengths by South African artist Ruann Coleman.
Ruann Coleman’s artistic practice is based on play, impromptu juxtapositions, experiment, chance and the serendipity of random accident. Mostly free-standing, un-monumental, process-related and at times, in formation, his sculptures combine and amalgamate organic and inorganic found materials such as wood, metal, tape or glass, establishing a rapport with an array of post-minimal practices. Conceptually, his work pivots around the materials of his found objects, their weight, scale, form and balance.
Ruann Coleman was born in 1988 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He holds a bachelor of fine art and masters of fine art degree from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. He has featured his works in several exhibitions including Balancing Act, SMAC Gallery, Stellenbosch (2014); Viewing Room III Landscape, SMAC Gallery, Cape Town (2014); The Space Between Maps, Absa Gallery, Johannesburg; and Ulterior, FNB Joburg Art Fair (2016).
