About "Transkei Sunset"
This study is about bright light and deep shade as the sun sets over a Transkei Village. The gravel street and the small houses dotted on the far hills conveys a sense of humble, and yet poverty existence.The shadowy individual near the bottom right corner adds an element of sinister malevolence while the old lady sitting on the stoep enjoying a setting sun is a reflection of the incredible patience of a humble tribal matriarch. The looseness of the painting is indicative of the haphazard rural settlements of the Transkei.
I'm inspired by what other artists do with all sorts of media. As many artists - as many creative ideas. I am comfortable in both oils and acrylic. I enjoy commissioned work. What else inspires me? The magic of paint, light and shadow as they all interact to suddenly bring your piece to life.
