I have been drawing from an early age and have always wanted to make images. When I was introduced to photography as a student, I felt that I had found a medium that I related to immediately, since it re-inforces the essential practices of creative seeing and composing, it lends itself to encouraging a particular vision, inclining one to focus and limit oneself to what is visually essential. This dicipline has, among its many possibilities, expanded and enriched my drawing practice. In my photography, I try to focus on the quiet, meditative quality in what I see around me, working towards ambivalent interpretations and associations of form. I try and communicate a stillness, whether it is found in sculptural mass or ephemeral atmospheric conditions.
In my drawings, I try to develop, by engaging with the subject matter using a playful and animated line, a sense of the texture of surfaces, building up dense atmospheric areas, much like one would find in silver prints in photography.
'Fence' 83 cm x 54 cm unframed size, drawing is framed R 7 500
Medium is mixed pens on paper; from rollerball pens to permanent ink pens. I mix the mark making.
It is part of a series on fences that I have been making over the years, both as photographs and as drawings.
My method is to take photographs and make sketches of the landscapes that interest me and then put them together in a planning sketch, so the particular landscape is made up of various landscapes.
The photos are 40x50cm print on archival paper will be R3800 each
Mandy grew up on a farm near Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, where she was inspired from a young age by the natural beauty surrounding her.
After studying graphic design in the early 80’s Mandy pursued a career in advertising. She then started her own business as a freelance graphic designer, specializing in book design. She created an array of beautiful books for several publishing houses, covering many diverse fields including wildlife, travel, natural history, cookery, gardening, history, arts and crafts. Her graphic design experience now compliments her painting career
In May 2007, Mandy picked up a paintbrush for the first time. She joined the South African Society of Artists in 2008 and has exhibited regularly at their annual exhibitions at Kirstenbosch. In 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 she qualified for SASA’s Merit exhibition, winning a commended award in 2013. Art Portfolio and Original Cape Art invite Mandy to partake in their regular group exhibitions at Kirstenbosch. The Grahamstown National Arts Festival in June/July has become an annual event. The Cape Gallery holds regular exhibitions in which Mandy has participated. Two of her wildlife paintings have been used in a BBC film series, titled The Crown to be released worldwide, in 2016. Mandy is represented by Fillingdon Fine Art, in High Wycombe in the UK.
Her hiking boots, together with a trusty camera, have clocked up many kilometres around the Western and Eastern Cape. This is where she gathers her inspiration. Mandy sells her work at galleries in and around Cape Town and also privately from her studio at home in Pinelands, which she shares with her husband Peter.

My work is about my world; the people, places and things I love. I enjoy capturing a moment – with a simple play of light, or a combination of architecture and people.
I believe in the fundamental principles and processes of art. This means a strong association with the historic disciplines of drawing and painting…

Hennie Meyer is a ceramic artist who uses the concept of repetition to cross over into the realm of installation.He makes use of multiples to create larger pieces. Conceptually he is interested in the diverse roles played by individuals in groups.
“Clay is a passion and obsession. Working with clay allows me to think.Observing a group of jugs in my studio sparked my first large scale installations in 2008. An invitation to make a number of extensive ceramic works for Qunci Villas, a boutique hotel in Lombok, Indonesia took these ideas further.”
The concept of repetition and variation are central to the successful Ukusela eKapa project that formed part of Cape Town as the 2014 World Design Capital.
Hennie studied ceramics in Australia and South Africa. He exhibits extensively, both locally and overseas. His work has been included in numerous permanent collections and international publications. Hennie and Heleen and their two sons live in Durbanville, Cape Town.
