Cape Town Art Guide -2Dec

Joshua Miles

Miles creates a combination of dark urban wastelands and natural backdrops, unlike his tranquil rural landscapes, in order to manifest imagery typical of contemporary Cape Town. He depicts smoggy views of the Woodstock and Salt River areas juxtaposed with Table Mountain in early morning light.

Aidon Westcott

Explained by a fish contained within water; while the water is contained within the river system or river bed. The symbolism lies in the dualities of inside and outside, interpreted as the subconscious and conscious elements co-existing in the natural environment. It is then portrayed within the landscape itself, which represents the whole or the psyche.
