The landscapes of South Africa are still wild enough to be magical. They are the kind of places that inspire reverence, in whatever form one chooses. The act of looking, feeling and making is one of paying homage. I want my work to carry the feeling of the life in the land; the curious little cool spots that nurture strange, endemic plants, and the possibility of discoveries that reveal things we did not know, the echo of patterns in the microscopic and the macroscopic. I can’t paint that kind of detail, but I can suggest that it is there – illusions that reveal biological truth.
