Title: Baobab 4
Size: 1500mmx1000mm (yes, it's BIG!)
Title: Farewell Vetkat
Title:Duncan Village, East London
I have enjoyed painting clusters of houses around the world lately, and this is another in that series. It is much closer to home than the previous 2, and is a typical African Township which are a feature of most South African towns. To be PC, they are now referred to as "informal settlements", but many of them go back for many years and are well established communities. Despite the fact that life there is hard, the houses leak and are poorly insulated, and basic services like water, power and sewerage removal are often lacking, they always seem to appear bright and colourful, teeming with life and activity. To me they symbolise man's indomitable spirit in the face of adversity.

Kühne Boekkooi Art Gallery
13 Walter Road, Charlo, Port Elizabeth, SA on 6th June 2007, and have been madly preparing for that.
The bulk of the new work has already been posted at Arty-Fartying-Around, and when i figure out how to move them across without having to upload all over, I will post the whole exhibition here, along with the new ones I do this week.
I am still getting things moving and wrapping up my interior design business, so I hope you will bear with me while I find out the safest and most cost effective way to post large stretched canvasses, and get registered for credit card payments, and you are welcome to e-mail me if you have any queries or advise!
