Kevin Brand @ Bell-Roberts

I went to the Bell-Roberts Gallery in Cape Town over the weekend for another walk-about with the Friends of the National Gallery. This time it was to meet artist Kevin Brand.

Firstly, I like what they have done with the gallery interior... a mix of the existing with modern elements. I think it makes for a nice gallery space.

So the talk lasted approx. an hour and every minute of it was very interesting! And it sure did not feel like an hour! And I could have listened for much longer! I think it is important to understand where the work comes from to fully appreciate it. Just look at the different scales of his work - really incredible. SO if you have time pop out to the gallery - it will be worth your while. There is also an interview with Kevin on the Bell-Roberts site, which you can listen to.
