I thoroughly enjoyed making these artworks for part of a group exhibition at the wonderful Loading Bay Gallery housed in the beautiful Con Amore in the hip hood of Station Road in Durban.
The exhibition opened on the 1st of July and runs until the 24th.
You can view the works here or on my facebook page.
My work reflects the freedom I find in open landscapes and then of forests filled with mystery. In some of these, I have included photographed figures taken during a typical day in the city. Placing these photographed images within painted forest and landscape settings creates a certain magic for me, and suggests that perhaps even living within the urban space, the longing for freedom of open planes and the magic of forests persist within us.
