“ARTWORK STORY: Kwepers (Quinces, for the English folk)
These dense fruits are a characteristic feature of the Karoo, where we now live and call home. They are a beautiful display in old bowls passed down through the generations, that find their way onto our modern tables. Holding these & their leaves to support their simple, textured beauty. Quinces to me, have become that one anchoring visual in a garden that reminds you where you are. The Karoo.
I have wanted to paint them for the longest time & include them in a collection that will be used for our textile range. These, to me, respresent home. They adorn my monochrome-clad home with bursts of citroen-yellow colour, with navy-green leaves.
Kwepers. A fruit called home.”
