BRUNDYN + GONSALVES is proud to announce Paul Emsley Retrospective Exhibition at the Sasol Art Gallery in Stellenbosch. Emsley has been selected as the 2012 Wordfest Artist and the exhibition runs alongside the US Wordfest programme. Curated by Amanda Botha, the show pays tribute to this highly esteemed artist who has dedicated the last 36 years to perfecting the art of drawing and painting.

Emsley’s art can be divided into 5 periods, each marking a distinct shift in style. Most recently he has become known for his unmatched life-like renditions of animals, landscapes, faces and flowers. In 2007 his large-scale oil painting of Michael Simpson won him first prize at the BP Portrait Awards; Michael Simpson was then exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery (London).

Walkabout: Paul Emsley on Wednesday 7 March @ 17h30 and Amanda Botha on Saturday 10 March @ 15h00.
