Airborn

Joy of releasing your body

I painted this after being inspired by my aunts passion for Dance. She’s been dancing since she was very little and now runs a dance studio in Cape Town. I’ve aimed to show the elation of what it feels like to really express joy through movement. The brush strokes are loose and full to show the energy of the moment.

I’ve hung onto the original for some time despite having a gallery offer to put it on show. Finally I decided that if someone really loves it they should be able to get it, so I’ve made it available to buy. A private viewing can be arranged at my home studio in Cape Town if required.

Rise

Like a dancer

After painting Airborn I enjoyed the painting so much I had to make another dancer painting.

With this one I decided to capture a more sensual mood of a contemporary dancer arching upward in a rising passionate motion. I’ve sought to give a feeling of the anticipation of the motion she’s about to make as she uses her lifted leg to pull the weight of her upper body up and then rise onto her feet.

Adrift

In the beauty of the ocean.

The name seeks to communicate what I’m going for here. The feeling of being aimlessly afloat in the vast, open ocean, when all the enormous blues seem to go on endlessly forever. The ocean to me feels almost like my true home, and water the most forgiving of elements. I’ve chosen a cool, calming, serene blue pallette and used a solvent to bleed a water like texture effect into the ocean surface. Perfect for a space you want to relax in or just want to bring a more peaceful atmosphere to.

Awakening

In time and the moment.

I wanted to create the sense of the moment of time or maybe the day just beginning using this beautiful nude as the subject matter. I’ve left the bottom of the painting with a half done feel to create the sense of this new half formed moment we are continually awakening into.

Furnace

Flames of life.

I like to think of a living elemental force like fire slowly flickering through the different forms of life on earth. This protea seemed to glow like a hot furnace from within and I’ve imagined a fiery heart within it’s glower petals.

Lantern

Glow of life.

I like to think of a living elemental force like fire slowly flickering through the different forms of life on earth. This protea, a flower native to my country, reminded me of a Chinese lantern and so I’ve tried to make it glow like one to show the living force within.

Flames

Fire of life.

I like to think of a living elemental force like fire slowly flickering through the different forms of life on earth. This protea seemed to flicker like the flames of a campfire and explode outwards in a wild fury of color.
