A MyJHB.co.za selected Johannesburg Art Gallery video for you:
This video features contemporary artist Claire Cowie, one of many prominent Northwest artists represented in the Henry’s permanent collection.
From painting to sculpture to photogravure, the work produced by Cowie conjures up a bizarre menagerie, replete with composite creatures and exotic locales. Haunting disembodied figures populate her landscapes; they appear at once otherworldly and familiar as they beckon the eye and the imagination.
