This fall, we are excited to feature a collection of new paintings created by artist Ryan Hewett specifically for the GMF space. The work is a continuation of the artist’s increasing emphasis on form and order in his compositions, which starkly contrasts with the loose, gestural style that characterized his earlier work. Expect figurative portraits as well as large-scale landscapes and more abstract compositions.
According to esteemed writer and art critic Edward Lucie-Smith, Hewett's pictures “appear on the painted surface in the form of extraordinary apparitions, present yet not present. The vigorous marks of the brush reveal them, yet at the same time conceal them...[Hewett is] one of South Africa’s most distinguished painters today.”
