SOUTH AFRICAN WILDFLOWERS
‘Home’ is a 100cm x 100cm oil painting on canvas. It’s a a visual ode to beauty, that was composed on my return to South Africa, after having lived in Zurich for two years. After the very organised and first-world way of living in Switzerland, I was drawn to painting the fluid lines and wildness of our very diverse and original South African floral kingdom. I had also just fallen in love -with the person who has been my partner for the last eighteen years- and that was really the impetus behind wanting to make this ode to ‘beauty’.
The work contains a plethora of indigenous local flowers, birds and butterflies.
