Quicksilver the Cat
Quicksilver the Cat
Embark on a captivating journey into the realm of South African wildlife with Anthony Gadd's abstract masterpiece, "Quicksilver the Cat" This original oil painting on canvas vividly portrays a wild cat in vibrant hues, beckoning you to immerse yourself in the untamed splendour of the animal kingdom.
Gadd's artistic perfectionism shines through as he thoughtfully selects poses and compositions that resonate with care and consideration. His style, characterized as bold, expressive, and unrestrained, embraces the unexpected, infusing each piece with energy and vitality. With an innate ability to capture fleeting moments in time, Anthony breathes life into intricate details, infusing boundless creativity into every brushstroke.
Inspired by the ever-changing allure of the sea and barren landscapes, Gadd captures the interplay of light on exposed rock formations and the shifting ocean hues, from tranquil turquoise to brooding stormy blues. "Quicksilver the Cat" exemplifies his mastery in recreating these transformative scenes, inviting you to embrace the dynamic essence of the untamed world.
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 with careful care and consideration. 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 alike 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.
