About "4 packets of nails and a pencil"

This painting was inspired by the actual packets of nails on my drawing board, but it is really a reflection on the creative process. Nails are a recurring image in art; Picasso used them to signify emotion and Dogon sculptors hammered them into fetishes to imbue them with power and energy.

About Rosemary

Rosemary is an Artist with based in South Africa.

My work is influenced by literature and how metaphors can be used in art and literature to build meaning. My recent paintings are especially influenced by South African contemporary literature, for example J. M. Coetzee and Marlene van Niekerk where there is an uncluttered realism that reflects our society.
