Mountains of the Cape
The distinctive mountains surrounding the City of Cape Town are intricately represented in this unique collection of striking, large-scale charcoal drawings. Arresting in their vast size, the artworks demonstrate the sheer magnitude of these natural monuments with their omnipotent presence.
The monochromatic nature of the charcoal medium emphasises the detail and texture of the mountain’s abstract forms; with plain white backgrounds highlighting their individual character and silhouettes. Black and white tones create deep contrasting textures; the chalky rocks, sharp crevices and vast peaks of the mountains are unmistakably recognisable as characteristic scenes of the Cape Mountain landscape.
