Purple Arum

Lipstick painting of arum lily

Arum lily painted in lipstick

Earlier today I spotted some unusual arum lilies at one of Johannesburg’s best-known fruit and flower shops, and thought I’d tackle them with lipstick. The finished work reminds me a little of the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe.

Sounds of the city

Another painting in my series for the Pulse of the City campaign, this time with a touch of humour. All the words in the painting refer to sounds you can hear in Joburg, from hadedas, to taxis, to barking dogs.

What is the mood of the city today?

This is my latest work for the Pulse of the City campaign to launch the Range Rover Evoque. In it I am trying to evoke the mood of the city, its coiling energy and brooding undercurrents. All of the writing on the work describes mood words such as “Angry’, “Tense’, “Optimistic” and so on.
