This collection of lion sculptures, leopard sculptures and cheetah sculptures make up a small but vital part of the body of work by John Tolmay. They are unique pieces that represent an interesting figurative narrative. A lion with a kudu carcass leads the way through this rich expression of African predator sculpture. A leopard being harassed by jackals tells another interesting story and a cheetah surveying the savannah for his next meal rounds out this eclectic collection of bronze cat sculptures
Georgie joined us at SEWE 2020, showing her paintings for the first time ever at an exhibition. These are the first pieces of wildlife art she has painted in an official capacity and took her 3 weeks to complete.
She came to learn, gather information and measure her work in the context of her fellow artists and what better place than the great collaborative atmosphere of the SEWE show and the charm of Charleston. The ground hornbill has already found a new home – snapped up before the show. The Cape Buffalo with the Ox Pecker and the Lioness are just now being framed so if any of you are interested in purchasing these originals please contact me directly for prices. No prints of these first paintings will be made.
The Cape Buffalo with the Ox Pecker is titled “Have You Found it Yet?” Acrylic on canvas paper and framed. Image size is: 19″ x 25.5″
The Lioness is titled “That’s Close Enough”. Acrylic on paper and framed. Image size is approx: 11″ x 15″
Georgie goes home to France tomorrow to now start painting in earnest and setting up her new website to showcase her work. I will let you know when the new site is up and running.
