I have loved the work of Kevin Stanley. The Furlong family own several paintings. These are bad photos, but I love the figures in the distance.
This one is new – he sent me this photograph recently. Below it is Kevin’s current biography.
Biography of Kevin Stanley
South African Artist and Gallery owner for 30 years
Signature ‘skyscapes’ of the Coast and Karoo
Works of oils on canvas
Kevin Stanley’s impressionist canvasses, reflect the colourful richness of nature, so lend to lifestyle art, bringing the outside to interiors; with seascapes for ‘waterside and beach living’, to a fundamental ‘country-look’ of vast Karoo horizons.
He has lived and farmed in the Karoo, where he was influenced by the scale of the horizon and ‘miniaturisation’ of man. His love of beach scenes comes from the life and light of the coast as he is spiritually inspired by the elements.
He was born in the Eastern Cape in 1954.
Kevin was a Johannesburg-based art dealer before moving to Cape Town where he started ‘live art’ and classes at Artemia in Pinelands, then opened Hout Bay Gallery in 1986
He has owned successful galleries in the UK and is still represented by others there
Kevin is a self-taught professional, offers art classes and undertakes framing services. Commissions can be undertaken
