JENNY HALLOWES: Lifescape

Local Hilton artist, Jenny Hallowes, sees her art making as a road she is travelling, a work in progress. Her exhibition Lifescape represents this life journey.

Her paintings and drawings are glimpses of her experiences, such as the livestock, river and rugged terrain on the farm Fisherman’s Bend,where her father did all his farming on horseback.

She includes images from the family’s beach cottage on the Pondoland Coast, with cattle on the beach, and goats, horses, pigs and chickens around the house where the artist still spends holidays.

She celebrates her life in Africa by rendering images of the tangled bush in Hluhluwe and Phinda game reserves, with a focus on the bright African light.
