About "Mossel Bay 2"
The second in a series of 3 paintings which originated from a photograph I took at the bustling harbour of Mossel Bay on the Garden Route in South Africa.
My Pop Art-inspired wildlife series depicts African icons such as zebras and giraffes in a contemporary, design-orientated style. While the African bush and its four-legged inhabitants are often seen as the province of macho hunters and explorers, I add a witty feminine touch to my depictions of the Big Five et al. The exciting animals spotted on safari are reimagined with bold backgrounds and unusual compositions, which make the viewer reconsider these tourist-brochure stalwarts. Inspired by modern legends such as Andy Warhol and Frida Kahlo, as well as revered South African colourists like Pierneef and Irma Stern, this series combines classic African nature, landscapes and wildlife with a focus on colour, composition and pattern.
