About "Cape Dutch Gables"
I have always been fascinated by architecture. Feeling the 'soul' of any given building is one of my favourite past times! Cape Dutch architecture is particularly interesting, with its historical roots and specific ambience, and the variety of 'gable' structures that have been adapted to compliment the African environment.

Since early childhood, my eyes have been the windows for my Soul - I have been literally focused upon the objective observation and potential understanding of everything I have ever looked upon and have always claimed my instinctive need to two-dimensionally re-present the shapes and forms that I see. I naturally possess personal preferences of subject matter, especially in my paintings - It seems that my Soul has a special affinity with the human physical form. Therefore my work aims to expose and amplify the particularly fascinating aspects of human faces and human bodies as I see them. And therein lies the basic impetus for my continual striving - To provide a fresh look, a new slant, an originality of perception based within my imaginative reinterpretation and artistic design of any subject matter. And therein also lies my purpose as an artist....I possess a genuinely HONEST Soul and TRUTH is the keyword to my overall existence - However, having spent many decades devoted to the performing arts, my current presentational credo is this: "To capture audience attention, one must be original and imaginative; one must be an entertainment magician; and one should always provoke and stun one's audience!"....for therein may ultimately lie the reception of any 'messages' one attempts to transmit?
