Leandra's Art 2

1985 - 1990

"Meditation On Black And White"

The theme of all my work in the eighties was about South Africa. About identity - who was I as a white South African living in a Europe as a non-European!
A series of about 40 post card sized paintings grouped together according to theme. They were done entirely with three oil pastels: red, white and black.

"I Say Goodbye" was the begining of a long period where I focussed on relationships as a theme.

Inspired by a woman's jazz group from the UK, a concert which I visited in Hamburg. I spent a couple of days and nights working on this painting.
