Still.Life – 2023
Oil on canvas. H75 x W130cm
San artefacts. The accoutrements for survival. The San (hunters and gatherers) together with the Khoi (pastoralists) are the First Nations people of Southern Africa. Against the odds they have survived which is suggested in the title. I am the custodian of a substantial personal collection of artefacts put together over a fifty year period which incorporates the Cnoops trove. The painting is a still life composition.
