Delia Funk & Michael Teffo

Textile art by Delia Funk and wood sculpture by Michael Teffo
1 October to 17 October 2020
 
Delia Funk, a textile artist who describes herself as a decorative artist, started her life in Port Elizabeth and spent her forming years in Johannesburg with creative parents Barbara and Desmond Greig before she ventured out on a varied and international career.  Apart from large commissions (interiors) for hotels and companies, her work can be found the USA, Germany, England, France and Spain.
 
Delia works on unstretched high-quality canvas which can hang like a scroll on a wall.  She works with the best quality textile dye.
 
Michael Teffo, a highly lauded artist, who held his first solo exhibition at the Association of Arts Pretoria in 1978, will be exhibiting wood sculptures in the same gallery.  He has held various solo-exhibitions and participated in several group exhibitions.  Teffo is mainly self-taught and a versatile artist.   However, he does not feel the lack of formal training as he does not wish to be influenced by other artists, but wants to remain himself in his attempts at showing life and interpreting it through symbols.
 
His sculptures with their strong lines and forceful expressions sing about a harmony which exists between humans and animals.  In this harmony he finds the peace and consolation which makes it possible to escape from the harshness of a modern scientific world.
