    Alexander, Keith Savel (South African 1946 - 1998)Tractor in shedOil on canvas, signed, 8055 x 75,5cm R45 000 R55 000

    P54

    Almost two thirds of this immaculately detailed painting is expended on the sky. And not the majestic sky typically captured in romanticised landscape paintings, but a midday sky in the platteland of southern Africa. Keith Alexander is famous for his paintings of seeming nothingness. Here, a small tractor stands forlorn under the meagre shade of a shed. There is nothing bar a few scattered trees for miles. The grass around the tractor suggests that perhaps it has been out of use for some time. The work that Alexander is commonly lauded for are his hyper-real surrealist visions of the Namib desert, which have a post-apocalyptic feel for the way they blend the sublime landscape and the ruins of mans existence. In this more subtle painting, Alexander is still able to capture this sense, but in a way that sits quietly, almost ominously beneath the surface.

    Catherine, Norman Clive (South African 1949 - )The BathersOil on canvas, signed60 x 50cm R30 000 R50 000

    P79

    A common subject in the 18th through the 20th century, the rendering of the body while bathing arguably began as a demure way in which to depict the nude fi gure. In later years, as an established subject, artists used it as a base for stylistic experiments. Notably, the French Post-Impressionist painter, Paul Czanne began to image groups of bathers in naturalistic settings, near lakes and in wooded groves. In this unusual work by Norman Catherine, two male fi gures lie in corpse-like poses near the edge of a dam. Peering at them from a few meters away is a hyena-like animal, which seems to be strangely glowing. The image, which we see from above, is simultaneously eerie and playful. The fi gures each wear a tight-fi tting swimming costume in the style pioneered by Speedo International Ltd. in the 1950s, which, in addition to their muscular torsos, suggests that the two fi gures might be sunbathing. In contrast the atmosphere and lighting of the scene, as well as the odd glow of the animal, give the sense that this is taking place at night. Hazel Freidman suggests that Catherines work is predominantly gender-specifi c, often depicting males as castrated monsters. This is often contrasted with a symbol of femininity: principally seen in the symbolic sense, through Catherines technicolour depictions of nature. This artwork seems to conform to this interpretation, supporting Friedmans argument that: In Catherines work nature is not a pastoral paradise. It is either an anarchic jungle, a toxic wasteland, the site of grotesque experiments or a battle zone where primal confl icts of power and powerlessness are played out.

    Pemba, George Mnyalaza Milwa (South African 1912 - 2001)Ready for The DanceOil on canvas, signed, 4736 x 28,4cm R150 000 R200 000

    P83

    Ready for The Dance is a painting of a young Xhosa woman in an ethnographic style typical of the time. George Pemba was likely to have been infl uenced by his contemporaries including Dorothy Kay and Barbara Tyrell, with whom he exhibited in the 1940s. It is also likely that this painting was shown at an exhibition of painting and beadwork organised by Killie Campbell at in 1947, or alternatively at Pembas solo show in Port Elizabeth in 1948. The title, as well as the dress of the subject and her slightly submissive seated pose on a straw mat, suggests that she is imaged before the Ntonjaan initiation ceremony, which marks the transition into adulthood. The attention to detail in the painting allows us insight into the cultural specifi city of the moment. The subject wears a short, wrap-around, red skirt, an unomtidili nesipeliti. On her forehead, she wears headband, an idayimane, associated with courtship. In addition to this detail, or perhaps, despite this, Pemba captures a particular tension in this small and intimate painting. The dramatic light, which casts a shadow on the left of the subject, her resigned and pensive expression, and the nervous tension in her fi ngers, suggests much more than a simple study of an ethnographic type.
