Art inspired by Matisse

Henri Matisse

In 2016 I had the privilege to attend an exhibition of  Henri Matisse with my three daughters and a friend at the Standard Bank Art Gallery in Johannesburg.

I took these images of my daughters, as I immediately saw the potential for paintings in these scenes. 

Here is the outcome.

I also did a laser-cut sculpture inspired by this painting and I am in the process of doing a few more with a twist.

Another very special image is this one of my three daughters discussing a portrait of Madam Matisse

And… the outcome of this one colored with a narrative approach:

These paintings were part of my Captured moments exhibition

Both of these paintings are available. Please send me an email to if you are interested in these paintings.
