We are delighted to report that the fabulous South African artist Debbie Field has joined the club of fans of Cuní Colours. Not only has she send us two pieces to share with you, she also told us about her painting experience: ‘I have also combined them a little bit with oil sticks, and with hot wax encaustic. The colours are so rich and deep and so so so intense!!! Just stunning. They give a very satisfying painting experience. I sense that I will be able to experiment a great deal with them as I get to know their properties better. I share your passion, and would certainly love to continue to use them.’
If that is not a glowing review….
But we couldn’t agree more – we were so impressed by this paint that we’ve even set up our micro company with the sole purpose to make this most beautiful of mediums available in the UK and to help to spread the word about this important rediscovery.
Here a bit more info about Debbie:
She is a graduate, majoring in Art, of Wits University, Gauteng. She has studied oil painting with Greg Kerr, Ryno Swart and Gill Trappler. Together with Ryno Swart, Gavin Calf and other artists, Debbie was a founder member of “The Artists Co-Operative”, now based in Simonstown.
She has studied ceramics with Wilma Cruise and Barbara Jackson, ran the children’s ceramic school at Barbara’s studio for several years, and her ceramic work and paintings have been shown in several group exhibitions in Cape Town and Johannesburg, with work in private collections both locally and abroad.
Most recently, her deep interest in the power of the creative impulse has led to her collaboration with dancer Balu Nivison in the development and facilitation of the “MovingArts” programme, which has been running successfully for the past 11 years.
We hope to share many more works of Debbie in the future with you. For more info go to her website http://www.debbiefield.co.za
