Close to Home – Solo exhibition , Cape Town 2018

‘Close to Home’ is a body of work expressed in larger scale paintings that explore themes of reclusion, belonging and mixed feelings on the idea of home. A much anticipated European summer was not spent along a hot tropical beach or a far away land, but rather behind closed doors in my home and studio in Berlin. During this time my thoughts drifted between feelings of reclusion, finding a sense of self in the not so new place of Berlin, that I call home, as well as small corners and still life’s of familiar scenes that gave me a sense of belonging.
