Artist's Thoughts

This is a Giclee print of the original oil painting, Watsonia.

Giclee is a French term meaning “to spray”, referring to how an inkjet printer works and how giclee prints are usually produced. These large format inkjet printers use small spraying devices that can both match color and apply ink precisely, giving artists a high-quality print of their original art.  This high-quality ink is true to colour and will not fade.

This artwork is printed on canvas and stretched over a frame – ready to hang.

About the artwork:

In this fynbos painting, I focused on bright pink Everlastings with Restios and Helichrysums in strong colours.

My 2020 paintings stand in stark contrast to the tense year that we find ourselves in – with many challenges and restrictions. In these paintings, I celebrate Spring in Cape Town and included some of my favourite fynbos plants: Watsonias; Helichrysams; Gnidias; Pincushions; Leucadendrons and Brunias.

I chose themes for my artworks such as ‘Overflow’ and ‘Abundance’ to bring pleasure, colour, hope and freedom into our lives.

I used fynbos plants as my inspiration but deviated from the original colours and shapes early in my creative process, as I wanted to portray freedom in my mark making with vibrant colours and strong contrasts.

My aim was to show the abundance of nature after such good rains in this year (2020). I want the ‘Abundance’ of the subject matter to ‘Overflow’ off the canvas – just as provision and blessings overflow in my life.  May this work bring hope and light wherever it is seen.
