Watercolour and printed work

These two pieces were created for an exhibition at Artspace in Johannesburg opening on 3 December, entitled 360 degrees of Johannesburg. These artworks are based on photographs taken from a building in Braamfontein. The photo’s have been simplified and deconstructed into blocks of colour, and then used as a colour theme. The image is abstracted and begins to say something about the palette of the city, which is unique in its blues and oranges, and it also refers to the structured modernist architecture found in areas such as Braamfontein.
