The Kalk Bay Modern is pleased to be featuring, in the current Art on Paper exhibition, some of the work of Jane Eppel, an artist who celebrates beauty and depth in unexpected places. Her work described as "quiet meditations which operate on two intersecting planes that allow the fusion of seeming opposites: privacy and accessibility, the personal and the public, the mysterious and the mundane, the spiritual and the worldly" by the late Professor Neville Dubow of the University of Cape Town.
Her work explores notions of homecoming, roots/routes, and hallowed space through personal iconography, often using images of her friends and family and the scenery of Cape Town.
Eppel, a Michaelis School of Art graduate, lives and works in Cape Town. She has displayed work at the Irma Stern Museum and was selected as a finalist for the Brett Kebble Awards in 2004.
