SHIRLEY BRANDON AT TAMASA (article first published : 2006-07-11)

Tamasa Gallery is exhibiting the latest works by Durban artist Shirley Brandon. The exhibition consists of large oils on canvas of Still Lifes, the artist drawing her inspiration for her paintings from her surroundings.

"I focus on the world around me,” she explains: “Objects, my children, flowers and landscape. I am interested in the use of pure colour, shape and light, space and the poetry of form."

Shirley Brandon attended Rhodes University in Grahamstown and graduated in 1978 with a Bachelor of Fine Art Honours ( with distinction).She studied under Professor Brian Bradshaw then followed with a Graphic Design diploma in Durban, completed in 1981.

She has participated in numerous group exhibitions at the KZNSA gallery and has also exhibited at the Crake Gallery and Hyde Park Gallery in Johannesburg. Her work is held in several private and corporate collections.

Shirley Brandon’s paintings will remain on show until July 29. More information from Tamasa Gallery in Overport Drive on 031 207 1223.
