On view until 15 June 2018, don’t miss the latest exhibition at The Cape Gallery – She Walks The Paths She Paints, a solo exhibition by Mandy Mckay.“I have heard Art defined as energy, the feat of an enquiring mind to enthuse the viscous matter of paint with spirit and life. Mandy has this magnetic energy which draws people to her and her paintings. She walks the paths she paints; climbs to reach a viewpoint. Her paintings are an extension of herself. They breathe!” (Gail Dorje)
Mandy McKay grew up on a farm near Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, where she was inspired by the beauty of the natural world surrounding her. After studying graphic design in the early 80’s, she pursued a career in advertising and later publishing.
In May 2007, Mandy picked up a paintbrush for the first time. She joined the South African Society of Artists in 2008 and has since exhibited regularly in their annual exhibitions at Kirstenbosch.
In 2010, 2012 and 2013 she qualified for SASAs Merit exhibition, winning a ‘commended’ award in 2013.
Her work is filled with colourful intepretations of the world around her; from natural landscapes and beautiful vistas, her art inspires.
