In contrast to the old Dutch houses in the foreground, the Cape Waterfront’s big wheel represents change, optimism and progress. The wheel is turning as change begins in spite of challenges.
Painting with wine is a fascinating process. The wine firstly needs to be boiled in a pot until a rich painting consistency is achieved. When the wine is first applied with brush to paper, it is deep red in coloring. Then after a several weeks, it changes to softer purple and then months later to a red-brown.
Over the last 4 years, I have observed these changes with wonder. Today the color has changed to a beautiful sepia ginger-brown. In this sense too, the artwork evolves dynamically as it embraces change.
