Hold the Open Heart
Oil on canvas over newsprint 100cmx150cm
For the woman, enraptured in the painting at the Zeitz MOCAA, I took inspiration from Kentridge depiction of figures in black and white. Outside. Yet, within the composition.
Action Ads newsprint over oil paint. Not sure if it will remain on the canvas as the paint dries? A touch of red in the underpainting. A selection of Kendtridge’s use of red, adding drama to the composition. I looked for aspects that highlighted the Coved-19, Knysna reality, while still capturing the essence of William Kentridge.
