Donna’s love of architecture and light, brought her attention to these large sea faring vessels. They attracted her in the same way the lonely farms of the Karoo attracted her, displaying isolated communities going about their daily lives. Donna is attracted by their mystique and design, the way the light falls over the container shapes, as well as the gritty reality of life aboard these busy vessels.

About Working Vessels

A tanker (or tank ship or tankship) is a merchant vessel designed to transport liquids or gases in bulk. Donna was inspired to paint vessels after her many visits to Singapore. Flying into Singapore, the oil trading hub for the world’s biggest consumer region, Asia, one sees the waters off Singapore’s coast or the nearby Malaysian waters full of idle tankers and ocean barges, like a floating city these vessels fill the landscape.
