Gwynneth van Jaarsveld - "Lionesses"
Acrylic on Canvas
W: 1200mm x H: 590mm x D: 5mm
This work is framed (but can be supplied either framed or unframed)
This painting was made from a photo we took with a very old and battered Minolta film camera my husband and I bought while on tour teaching music, art, drama and photography in South Africa.
As an artist, I am inspired by the fact that our world did not just spontaneously come about. It was thoughtfully and lovingly designed and made for us. I like to see myself an "observer of beauty" and this is where all my creations originate. Something else that influences my work is that I have a visual impairment. Stargard's Dystrophy is a retinal condition that causes loss of central vision. I have to get real close to objects and images to observe detail. I believe that people overlook detail and beauty in the rush of their daily lives. I would like to inspire my audience to stop, look and recognize the fingerprints of our Creator on the world around them, and also on themselves.
