Cris Worley Fine Arts presents Isabelle du Toit: "Truce" opening reception
Cris Worley will present “Truce” by Isabelle du Toit, her seventh showing with Cris Worley. “Truce” will include new wildlife paintings exploring the peaceful coexistence of predator-prey relationships on canvas.
In “Truce,” du Toit creates a quiet juxtaposition between predator and prey, in various positions of embrace and tolerance. Such odd-bedfellows include the Ibis and two snails; a gray wolf and fox; a snow leopard and a mountain goat. According to the artist, this series looks at the idea of truce from three perspectives: war, relationships, and animal conservation; it is “an armistice to open a door for understanding, tolerance and reconciliation.” In today’s climate of intense emotional and ideological differences, du Toit shows us the harmony within the animal kingdom, as role models for us all.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through December 30.
