Welcome to the Disintegration mini-site. Dedicated to the Corne Eksteen solo art exhibition that took place during September 2015, at artSPACE durban, Durban, South Africa.


"Disintegration" opened to the public on August 31, 2015 at the artSPACE durban Gallery, Durban, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. The exhibition consisted of 15 new artworks.



Utilising a distinctive approach to this tradition, these works visually explore themes relating to the deconstruction and fragmentation of identity. Through a process of drawing on conventions of both, figurative and abstract painting, the works attempt to visually dissect the subject matter in the pursuit of an understanding of the dynamics and transient nature of the 21st century psyche. They are intended to evoke discussion on the idea of personal identity as a series of disjointed concepts in a continuous state of flux.


featured works

Works included in the "Disintegration" exhibition ranged from as small as 34 x 34cm to larger works of 1 x 1 meter.
All works were produced in oil on canvas.
