To be opened by Margie Johnson
On the street, on the beach, on the mountain or in quiet reflection in the studio; Helen van Stolk, Mandy McKay and Veronica Reid share a capacity for keen observation and the ability to translate a scene that peaks their interest into the medium of their choice.
Mandy McKay picked up a paintbrush for the first time in 2007. She began taking lessons and attending workshops, while busy in her design studio, her forte being the layout and design of coffee table books. Mandy describes fond memories of observing and absorbing the finer details of being an artist from Frederike Stokhuyzen, while project managing and designing her book, Born to be an Artist.
Having grown up on a farm in the Easter n Cape, she has developed an acute appreciation for nature and seeks solitude from the city, portraying scenes from in and around Table Mountain, an apple orchard in Elgin, the Easter n Cape bush and the West Coast National Park in spring.
In contrast to Mandy’s search for the local bush, flowers and wildlife amidst the concrete constellations, Helen van Stolk is drawn to the shapes, figures and colours of the city. Helen has been tutored by Edie Wilson-Smith, Lesley Charnock and Margie Johnson and has attended workshops with Ryno Swart, Adolfo McQue, Hazel Soan and Natalie Hirshmann. Born in 1971 in South Africa, she spent most of her school years in Johannesburg before moving to England with her family in 1987. After completing her studies in England she returned to Cape Town, where she took up permanent residence.
Helen describes her current selection of work as “part Cape Town, part Paris”, having spent 10 days in Paris in 2012. Her travels between South Africa and Europe are evidently influential in her work, playing with light and composition in order to relay the mood and story of the cityscape; capturing a moment in time.
Veronica Reid studied at Ruth Prowse School of Art. She participated in a few courses with Greg Carr and has studied at the Artists’ CO-Op.
She enjoys capturing pensive figures through portraiture and intimate spaces in small gardens and parks. Veronica possesses the unique capacity to obscure and capture light. She will exhibit a series of portraits through which she embraces the concept of creativity and expression through style and appearance.
