Keep the hope – Jenny Reyneke

ART ON THE FRINGE

Winter has come to the lands and despite the shadows and fears in the artist’s mind, the gold of the coldest South African season is a reminder to be fully present in the moment and to strive to find the beauty in the everyday. Jenny Reyneke’s little works are a language of love for Africa and its people. “Whenever things during lockdown become too much, I paint these studies of our home on a farm in Boons, just outside Magaliesburg. They are 19cm x 19cm oil landscapes on woodblocks, so they are easy to carry into the fields.” Placed on a shelf, they are prayers in a row.
