"Kerkraad Ng Gemeente Lyttelton-Oos"

5 - 29 March 2008
Opening reception: Wednesday 5 March at 6pm

The paintings in KERKRAAD NG GEMEENTE LYTTELTON-OOS are part of a series that draws on a stash of old books and photographs which I dug up in my family home in a suburb near Pretoria. For the portrait series I used a group photograph that was taken in 1988. I homed in on their faces, distilling a glance from each member.
