A dilapidated house, crumbling more each year, this building has often captured Donna’s attention. This painting captures it with a strong beam of sunlight highlighting it broken porch roof, letting streaks of light come through the to paint the wall in various shades of shadow.
This work formed part of Donna’s solo exhibition at the gallery at Grand Provence, Franschhoek, entitled Life as a House in 2012.
Donna explored a more playful approach with this exhibition, moving away from her romantic realism, instead expressing something more complex about life, alongside its raw beauty and shifting perspectives.
