“Faces of Durban” by Janine Jollands 19 November - 1 December 2016
An exhibition of oil painting portraits
This portrait series draws inspiration from the faces of Durban and the cosmopolitan nature of my city. As a proud and passionate child of Africa, I find beauty in the diversity of her people and the vibrancy of her landscapes.
My work is less figurative and more abstract, using colour and mark-making to convey the energy, spirit and character of each individual. From the Durban surfer dude to the Afro's enthusiast to the sassy Clicks cashier, these portraits hope to encapsulate the vigour and life of this compelling city I call home.
