LUSHAN MANSELL (article first published : 2001-04-29)

Opening at the BAT Centre’s Menzi Mcunu Gallery on May 9 to run until June 3 is Port Elizabeth artist Lushan Mansell's first solo exhibition. Its theme is Jazzart expression and interpretation.

"For me, the creation of art has become an act of surrender and trust: of my muses, who decide what has to be expressed, and of my skill that has been developed over the period of my life,” says this Port Elizabeth Technikon graduate. “What has transpired is a collection of images on paper that express in line, tone and composition, the inner landscapes."

"While they are sourced from my own experiences,” she continues, “the images are open enough for the viewer to step into them and allow what is given to give expression to their experiences. I grow in confidence and skill and so add colour and texture to my palette in a gesture of reciprocation to the Universe that has given them to us."
