Hylton Nel
Recent ceramics

10 December 2003 - 24 January 2004
Hylton Nel's first solo exhibition in South Africa many years was accompanied by a lavishly illustrated book on the artist jointly published by Michael Stevenson and the Fine Arts Society in London. The book includes a long and fascinating interview by Michael Stevenson with Nel on his life and work. The book is available in hard and soft cover.

Nel describes himself as an 'artist-potter' which aptly refers to his interest in painted imagery as well as with form and function. Over the past four decades he has developed a style of work that is rich in references to the decorative arts and literary and art historical sources. His plates, bowls, vases, plaques and figurative pieces are idiosyncratically decorated with witty - and sometimes poignant - line drawings and script. His imagery ranges from penises to Madonnas, and from cats through to angels, and his quotes are drawn from poetry and the daily press as well as his observations of the world around him. He presently lives on the outskirts of Calitzdorp, a small town in the Klein Karoo.
