An exhibition of Carey May’s paintings using oil as the medium and focusing on colour and light.
I have painted in oils for twenty years from 1998 focusing mainly on colour and light.
Working in community development work for fifteen years I left to study art. The development work afforded me the opportunity to have a deep interest in people and appreciation of the impact of the environment on their lives. I studied art for seven years at Pascal Chandlers Studio in Durban. During this time I exhibited in regular group shows culminating in a solo exhibition in 2007. My work at the solo exhibition was positively received entitled Loudly Standing at the Artspace Gallery Durban it explored environmental issues. Particularly the need for people to protect water as a precious resource. I have travelled extensively in Italy, France and Turkey which has inspired my fascination with chiascuro (exploring dark and light). I live and work in McGregor and the Bo-kaap. I am currently exhibiting at the Leivoor Gallery in How Bazaar, Voortrekker Street, McGregor.
