About "Encroaching Man"
Mankind encroaches on nature looking for housing, minerals, natural bounty while polluting the environment. Here that encroachment is symbolised by the inexorable march of the power pylons across the canvas; the never-ending demand on nature is seen in the circular flight of the flamingo's; while the shrinking environment is seen in the reduced body of water the birds call home. A single Protea bloom looks on at the threatened biome while a sky darkens with blood.
Light is the artist's inspiration, especially the play of light and dark on contours of objects, landscapes and figures.
