RHYTHMS Regi Bardavid Solo Exhibition

24 Aug – 20 Sept.

The Melrose Gallery JHB

Learning to live with myself. No outside


I become one with my surroundings and the

sounds of silence. Time is mine.

More in tune with myself.

Bubbles of insight emerge from my being.

A profound unconscious sense of self and

calm. Frees my hands and mind.

Charcoal and pencils.

Paint and colours applied without constraints.

The music has started.

The dance followed.

Regi Bardavid was born in Alexandria Egypt and

has travelled extensively, living in Italy, Zimbabwe,

Zaire and South Africa. She has remained firmly

rooted in the ‘abstract’ throughout her career

which spans more than four decades.

Bardavid studied under the guidance of the

artist, teacher and activist Bill Ainslie at the

Johannesburg Art Foundation (1979-1983).

Completed her Matric in 1984 and enrolled as

a Fine Art student at UNISA in 1985 achieving

a B.A.F.A. in 1989. Her work has can be found

in the South African National Gallery, the South

African embassy in France, Oppenheimer

Collection and the Commonwealth Bank of

Australia to name a few.
