Nicholas Esterhuizen – The Face of Cape Town – 3 March – 10 April 2014

With his new body of work, Nicholas Esterhuizen has spent the last year searching for the identity of Cape Town through the many faces of its inhabitants. Nicholas has endeavoured to weave together a picture of the multi faceted society of the city with over 30 portraits painted on linen. Painting each portrait from life he has tried to express the dialogue between the artist and sitter as well as to represent the colourful types common to the Mother City.
