Karoo | A solo exhibition by Bruce Backhouse
Gallery 2 presents Karoo - A solo exhibition by Bruce Backhouse
Throughout his career, Bruce has immersed himself in the vast arid interior of South Africa – the Great Karoo and the Kalahari. His landscape paintings are the consequence of his intense visceral relationship with uninhabited aridity devoid of human manipulation.
Preferring to work on location, never from photographs, he is a firm believer in the subconscious development of the artists mark with “time in the saddle”.
This body of work, in watercolours and oils, stretches back over countless trips to the Great Karoo over the last 10 years.
