South African Artists at Home
An artist’s canvas reflects the face he chooses to show to the world, but the place in which that art is made is seldom revealed. Paul Duncan was given unparalleled access into the homes and lives of fifteen of South Africa's most revered artists. Over countless mugs of coffee or glasses of wine, he listened and observed as they spoke about their lives, loves and the way they make their art.
South African Artists at Home takes the reader into some very private spaces, affording us a glimpse of what the artist goes home to at the end of the day. For some, the workspace and home space are irrevocably intertwined. For others, home is a sanctuary. Or perhaps it is the studio that is the sanctuary and home is where real life happens. Either way, if you have an interest in art, artists, and the often-bizarre way that making art intersects with living life, you’ll find this book intriguing.
Remarkable Heritage Houses of South Africa
Predominantly constructed no later than the mid-1950s and chosen for the singular legacy each keeps alive; these are homes that blend architectural integrity with an uncanny sense of place. Some more ‘historic’ than others, they have been sensitively rescued or meticulously preserved, or simply kept current with custodianship that has at all times respected their unique pedigree. Strikingly captured by distinguished photographer, Craig Fraser, they cover the full gamut of locations, architectural genres and interior decorating styles, yet have all been skilfully adapted to meet the demands of modern living.
