Artist Anthony Gadd's masterpiece, "Dance of the Sun and Shadow," is a mesmerizing original mixed media creation that transports observers to an abstract African realm. The canvas unfolds with the red earth of Africa sprawling beneath majestic acacia trees, creating a vivid and evocative tableau.

Gadd ingeniously plays with contrasts, the bright red grounding against the dark silhouette of the acacia trees suggesting a harmonious balance between opposing forces. Known for his meticulous perfectionism, Gadd approaches his subjects with profound dedication, infusing each composition with contemplative thought and intentional artistry. His signature style, marked by loose, bold, and expressive strokes, attests to his embrace of spontaneity and the vibrant energy that "happy accidents" bestow upon his work.

Gadd's artistic brilliance radiates as he adeptly captures fleeting moments, infusing his creations with a pulsating rhythm of creativity, meticulous attention to detail, and an unbridled sense of artistic liberty that permeates every brushstroke. The acacia trees, symbolic of Africa's diverse landscapes, stand as central icons in Gadd's artwork, portraying the continent's spirit with their distinctive silhouettes and resilience. Gadd's portrayal of the red earth beneath these iconic trees pays homage to Africa's singular natural beauty, resulting in a spellbinding fusion of nature's grandeur and the artist's boundless imagination, encapsulated in the evocative masterpiece, "Dance of the Sun and Shadow."

About Artist

Anthony Gadd has had a passion for art since his early school days in the Eastern Cape. A childhood spent roaming farms and interacting with wildlife gave him a deep respect for his environment, which he now translates into his South African landscape paintings.

A perfectionist at heart, Anthony Gadd chooses each subject's pose and composition carefully. But whether capturing intimate portraits of South African wildlife, an unspoiled landscape, or the sea's wildness, his work leaves room for surprise and playfulness. "My style has been described as loose, bold, and expressive. I treasure the 'happy accident' which brings gesture and freshness to each piece I create."

"I think I've matured from my original, more realistic style to become looser and more abstract." His approach includes doing most of his painting with four-inch brushes (the type used to paint a house) "so the brushwork has gesture and freshness."

Gadd has won the SA Society of Artists award for best-mixed media, holds permanent exhibitions in numerous galleries, has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, and is frequently commissioned. Gallery owners and art lovers can't get enough of his unique and dynamic approach to art.

Anthony works from his studio in Cape Town, is married to artist and author Ann, and has two children.
