Adrie le Roux | Solo

Farrah was not a Dalmatian

The Drawing Room is pleased to present its first solo show by artist and illustrator Adrie le Roux.

The exhibition presents new work created by Adrie for a children’s book she has written and illustrated called ‘Farrah was not a Dalmatian’. The story follows the plight of Farrah, an English Pointer dismayed at her constant misidentification as a Dalmatian, and her efforts to be recognised for who she really is. Although it is a children’s book, the story brings in some tough themes like social identity and “othering”.

Farrah will be at The Drawing Room from 1 – 29 July 2015.

Exhibition opens on Wednesday 1 July, 6-8pm

The Drawing Room
87 Station Road, Observatory

Adrie Le Roux is currently based in Pretoria where she works as a lecturer and freelance creative. She holds a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria in 2006, and an MPhil degree in Visual Arts (Illustration) from Stellenbosch University. She is currently working towards a PhD in Visual Arts through Stellenbosch University.

Her work is characterized by subtle, abstract compositions, which combine ink work, pencil drawing, painting & collage techniques. Her illustrative work sometimes ventures into mixed media, muted colours and bold texture. If sarcasm and compassion met in a bar, it might be one of Adrie’s illustrations.
