Immerse yourself in the exhilarating world of Anthony Gadd's "Rooted Acacia," a thrilling original mixed media creation that propels viewers into an electrifying abstract African panorama. Within this dynamic piece, the fiery red earth of Africa sprawls beneath the majestic acacia trees, crafting a vivid and emotionally charged tableau that sparks excitement and wonder.

Recognized as a meticulous perfectionist, Gadd approaches his subjects with unwavering care, infusing each composition with profound thought and intention. His distinctive style, marked by its audacious, bold, and expressive strokes, stands as a testament to his embrace of the unexpected dynamism and vitality that "happy accidents" bring to his work.

Gadd's artistic brilliance radiates as he deftly captures ephemeral moments in time, infusing his creations with a pulsating rhythm of creativity, meticulous attention to detail, and an unbridled sense of artistic liberty that permeates every electrifying brushstroke.

The acacia trees, iconic symbols of Africa's vast and varied landscapes, take center stage in Gadd's artwork. Their distinctive silhouettes and unyielding resilience in the face of arid conditions evoke the very spirit of the African continent. Gadd's portrayal of the red earth beneath these iconic trees pays homage to the unparalleled beauty of Africa's natural world. The outcome is an exhilarating fusion of nature's unbridled grandeur and the boundless depths of the artist's imagination, vividly captured in the heart-pounding masterpiece, "Rooted Acacia."

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.
