30x30cm, Acrylic on Canvas.
This piece followed ‘Reflected’ as another curious experiment. Aside from visual interest and the fact that I love the colour gold, I haven’t really thought of a concept behind the fact that I use gold as a backdrop. But as I say that, I feel the gold in fact does symbolize something. Gold was one of South Africa’s most bountiful and valuable resources and just as valuable as that natural resource is the wildlife that around us creates a paradise worth cherishing and conserving.
