Comments by Dr Greg Kerr

“The artists work is a celebration of the medium of oil paint and its capacity to both refer to the familiar (the artist delves into art history and personal experience) and evoke novelty through unusual and expressive explorations of the South African landscape and the human figure as well as objects used daily.

Each work can be enjoyed from a distance as well as close up. Emphasis has been placed on the tonal composition first and then the linear. The first priority of colour is its capacity to suggest temperature and thus spatial tension. The artist has focused on a dynamic combination of glazes against impasto. The result is a joyous indulgence in the richness and musculature of oil paint.”
