I’m looking forward to seeing the joint show by Cape Town artists, Gabrielle Raaff and Tamsyn Lancaster, opening at These Four Walls in Observatory on Friday 17 October.

Gabrielle Raaff (above) uses the traditional medium of watercolour on paper, as well as technology like Google Earth, to explore contemporary urban experiences, reflecting on issues of intimacy and isolation within the urban environment.

Tamsyn Lancaster’s paintings draw attention to the animals present in our urban environment, using them as a means of noticing in amongst the bombardment of sensory stimulation in our urban settings.

The show is entitled Periphery: observations of urban life in paint, and is open until 7 November. See more details at the gallery website.
