About The Artwork

"Shifting away from my broad color palette, I engaged with colors Jean-Michel Basquiat used which appealed to me. The African symbols are there, but this time in bold red set against yellow and grey/black. It is a departure I enjoyed." The symbols used in the work relate to African themes such as a good marriage, protection, friendship, working together, development, etc. They are intended to imbue the hanging space with positivity.

Ann is a vibrant and prolific artist, wildlife photographer, and author. She was voted in 2020 as one of South Africa's top artists. She initially became known for her ‘ewe/sheep’ series of work. Whilst maintaining her ironic humor she has painted a number of other series of works, including ‘Wild Life’ ‘Zulu Lulu’ and 'Going to the Dogs series. A recurring theme in her work is a play on words and the use of popular jargon. Her quirky, humorous, yet profoundly insightful art, allows the viewer not only to laugh at themselves but to examine many of the absurd aspects of life.
