Keith Calder

'To be able to draw upon the power and beauty of wild things and portray them in sculpture is a great privilege for me. Perhaps they symbolize our purer selves or jolt our deep seated ancestral memory of when we once lived closer to the earth.'

Demonstrating an impressive degree of professionalism with her fine attention to detail, use of bold, sometimes decadent, colours and finely wrought textures, this South African artist has a rare talent for combining simplicity of design with intricate detail so that both complement each other in a way that makes her work generous, evocative, very appealing, and uniquely contemporary.

Roy Fairchild

Fairchild’s artworks are rich and sumptuous, and he uses many mixed media in their attainment. His compositions are vigorous and brilliantly inventive, making use of many varied interwoven elements like fabric, flowers and the human form. As a printmaker Fairchild has found greatest expression in silkscreening, where the rigorous design and rich opaque colouring of his work is furthered by the medium. Many of his works can truly be described as limited edition mixed media; such is his fervor to make each image as memorable as possible.

Ann Gadd

Ann has taken her more complex expressionistic style of the past and simplified her later works to a more naïve yet somewhat surrealistic style. Gone are her wild colourful brushstrokes, to be replaced by a more textured, simplified and mature approach to her work. Occasionally her quirky sense of humour emerges in her works as in the “Ambitious Sheep” series. Her sense of colour has remained although tempered with experience.

Hand Coloured Engravings

Engraving as a printmaking method was developed during the 15th Century when metal plates began to replace the use of carved wooden printing blocks for the reproduction of works of art. A plate of soft metal is used, most often copper, and the design engraved (cut into) into the surface using a tool called a 'burin'. The highly skilled engraver uses the burin to cut an image, as a series of lines of varying width and depth, that are a translation of the tones and shadings of the artist's original work.

Wallace Hulley

Wallace Hulley is magnificent in his watercolours – he actually draws with his brush! A question often asked is “How long does Mr. Hulley take to do his watercolours?” Answer – 10 minutes and forty-five years! As you look at the total composition created, you find your eye making up the detail which is actually not there but ought to be there, thereby putting yourself into the picture and completing the composition.

Margot Hattingh

Profoundly rooted in Africa but with an inevitable overlay of European culture and history, she strives to develop a new reality in her art where two supposedly opposing cultures come together in a synthesis greater and more beautiful than the sum of its parts.

Wessel Marais

Wessel believed that a skilled artist must be able to interpret any subject matter successfully on canvas. His personal preferences were to portray everyday scenes with an innate playful, abandon and poetic intuition. His ability to portray the captivating play of light and shadow in vibrant colours was a gift, which is highly appreciated by his many admirers. Wessel continued to improve in both style and execution throughout his life – developing the great use of translucent colour and light that have given many of his works a captivating 'Turneresque' quality.

Selwyn Pekeur

A positive influence in the new South Africa, Selwyn chooses to explore humour as a force to bridge the cultural divide rather than redefine the fault lines that have separated the communities of the past. Laughter heals. Selwyn is truly one of those wonderful artists that observes incidents in everyday life, exaggerates and represents them to us in a style of compelling vigour and humour in his art.

Gerrit Roon

Art admirers are particularly drawn to this artist’s work, as it combines lush treatment of South African scenery with expert technique.

Roeloff Rossouw

Rossouw finds potential, inspiration and material in everyday situations. The subject matter in Rossouw’s art is not always grand or idyllic - quite the opposite. He observes the abstract shapes and exciting contrasts created by the sunlit and shadow areas of buildings - an old factory, a boat yard, a crowded street and farmlands. Rossouw’s paintings have something to do with mood, light and colour, trying to create a particular atmosphere and sense of time by reducing unnecessary detail to focus the attention on colour and the juxtaposition of colour.

Stefan Rossouw

Staying true to his nature as a perfectionist, this South African artist studies every detail of his subjects intensely; ceaselessly analysing the anatomy and form of his subjects in order to understand the function of each part as he creates his distinctive sculptures.

Vincent Reid

Pencil is my medium of choice because it is an extremely direct medium which satisfies my desire to express the deep contrasts and textures of my subjects. I aim to capture those moments which represent the essence of the African outdoor experience.

Frank Ross

Frank’s use of colour in producing township art is bold, direct and deliberate. The colour red is deeply symbolic to him. “I always paint the land in red. The red symbolises the unhappiness from our land. There is always trouble. Our people have many problems with land. There is ongoing political trouble.” The light reflects off the metal tin roofs, encouraging closer scrutiny of the detail in the artwork. The shining colours highlight the various materials used in construction of dwellings and shops; the brightly coloured clothes drying in the wind over walls and on makeshift washing lines; the dust from the local soccer match and the sounds of daily life in the Township come alive. Occasionally the iconic Table Mountain is silhouetted in the background as one is drawn into the energy and vibrancy of South African Township life as captured by Frank’s rough and honest artworks.
