Derek Drake | Revisited | A Retrospective
26th May 2024- current

The Image as Memory

Derek Drake Revisited is a retrospective exhibition celebrating the life and legacy of Derek Drake (1933 – 2023). Immigrating from the UK to Africa as a young man, Drake was captivated by the continent’s colors, patterns, contours, and cultures, which profoundly influenced his work. Settling in Cape Town, he explored various creative productions, with a significant period spent in an art studio in District Six. There, he felt a sense of belonging and captured the community’s spirit in his paintings. Distressed by the destruction of District Six under the Group Areas Act, Drake used his art to protest and preserve its memory.

Later, Drake’s fascination with Jungian philosophy led him to embrace abstraction, aligning with Abstract Expressionist artists. Despite gradually losing his eyesight, he continued to create, expressing his anguish and struggles on canvas, particularly after the loss of his son.

This exhibition revisits Derek Drake’s artistic journey, showcasing how art can awaken memories of places destroyed and people forgotten.
