    Ed Bredenkamp

    Painter

    I was born in a small mining town in Zimbabwe and spent my childhood in the almost perpetual sunlight of southern Africa. I explored the wild hills surrounding the suburb where I lived with my parents and sisters and devoted countless hours to racing my bicycle up and down streets lined with jacarandas and bougainvillea but the greatest joy was derived from fishing a blank piece of paper out of a drawer, searching for a pencil or crayon and pestering my mother with the question, “What can I draw now?”

    Anel Wessels

    Photographer

    My photographic work explores issues around societal inequalities and personal stories. My approach to my subject and environment, combined with the documentary qualities of traditional black and white film photography, allows me to create emotive works which tell a story through intimate and candid moments, inviting the viewer to bear witness.

    Elise Macdonald

    Painter

    Best described as “magical realism”, Elise Macdonald's oil paintings are rich in imagination.

    There is a narrative element in all her paintings and the viewer is invited to enter the realm of their imagination. Women, flowers and birds are depicted realistically but in a fantastical situation.
