Chandler House is delighted to be hosting the very first solo exhibition by Cape Town artist Lené Ehlers. What started off as a more graphic and illustrative exhibition, soon flourished into  a more painterly and informed one after the artist was introduced to the world of  suzanis. Ehlers spent weeks with a private collection of these embroidered Uzbek textiles, and, like the woven material she spent time with, the artist began weaving her brush-work and her ideas into the surfaces of her paintings. The cutting, collage and layering of her paperwork lead to new ways of expressing a new-found love for ancient motifs and patterns. In this exhibition, the viewer is invited upon a magic carpet ride, celebrating intuitive and fleeting moments of abundant colour, form and pattern.

The exhibition will open on Thursday 7th of April 2022 at 5pm and will run until the 3rd of May 2022.

‘Tell me what it is you plan to do

With your one wild and precious life.

When it is over, I want to say:

all my life I was the bride,

married to amazement.

I was the bridegroom,

taking the world into my arms.

To pay attention-

this is our endless and proper work.

Pay attention.

Be astonished.

Tell about it.

– Mary Oliver, ‘The Summer Day’
