Justine Mahoney, Venus, Hand Painted and Patinated Bronze Sculpture

$45,200

About

Following on from her major new work, Sleep Ninja, launched at PAD London in October, Justine Mahoney launches another figurative bronze sculpture, titled Venus. Describing the piece as “a Venus of this age, broken apart and reassembled”, Justine envisions the Roman goddess of beauty as part robot, part children’s toy, her naked torso modelled after 19th century painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s idealised Venus.

About The Maker

Southern Guild commissions, produces and exhibits contemporary collectible design by the most compelling talents in South Africa. The gallery has pioneered the collectible design category on the African continent, propelling its artists and designers to make original work that is distinctly local and globally relevant. Founded in 2008 by Trevyn and Julian McGowan, Southern Guild’s rigorous curatorial programme has shaped the world’s perceptions of African design and forged a unique vernacular in the international arena. Located in Cape Town’s Silo District, adjacent to the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, the gallery showcases limited-edition and one-off pieces that have garnered multiple awards and caught the attention of the world’s leading collectors, auction houses, museums and institutions. The first African gallery to present at Design Miami and Christie’s London’s annual design auction, Southern Guild shows regularly at Design Miami in the US and Basel, and has exhibited at PAD London, The Salon Art & Design and Collective (New York), and Design Days Dubai. Its artists have shown at the Vitra Design Museum and Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and have work in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne) and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It frequently collaborates with New York galleries R & Company, Friedman Benda and Todd Merrill, further exposing its artist-designers to the most important international audience.
