landscape with houses

if you were ever near an art school in your youth or more likely as part of your tertiary education, you probably had to do light & colour exercises – where the different combinations of hues & shades would influence the object and how it looked in its surroundings. so i really smiled when i saw these house & landscape studies by maria zaikana – read more about the project here

In Daniel Naudé’s first solo show, he presents a world that appears to be a fairy tale, or a fictional place: We see a donkey with the grace of a race horse. Next to an impossibly beautiful rainbow, a white mule almost turns into a unicorn. The hills and veld that Naudé invites us to traverse are filled with wonderful creatures, each more proud, perfect, and present than the next.
