Nel Gallery is centrally located on the corner of Long and Church Streets in Cape Town. It is owned and directed by artist Luan Nel alongside his partner and spouse Neil Pendock. The gallery usually has an ongoing group hang of mostly local artists, but also artists from the rest of the country and further afield. In addition to the group hang they host solo and two-person exhibitions at regular intervals throughout the year.
The gallery is open during regular gallery hours and adheres to COVID-19 regulations. Please wear a mask, sanitise your hands upon entry and always practice social distancing.
It has been around as long as humankind has been around. The Green Monster, the cause of all wrong, the worst emotion we are capable of, the first real sin after the fall.
Envy is more prevalent than ever before with the bandwidth it currently enjoys within social media. It is not difficult to spot and results in what is referred to as 'hate'. Art is no foreigner to Envy as the subject. From the earliest depictions of biblical stories, notably the tale of Cain and Abel, through to William Blake, Odilon Redon, Edvard Munch, up until now. It finds its place in every generation of artists. This is the introductory exhibition to a series of exhibitions on the subject by Nel. The other iterations are planned for later and will be online only exhibitions.
