By Jen Adam

Oil on Canvas / 60 x 90cm
  • To admire Jen Adam's warm and soulful ethnic canvases is to experience a spiritual journey into Africa. African meaning for SIPHOKAZI - "A Gift".

    Painting with a warm and dusty earth-coloured palette and embellishing with a finishing touch of 24-carat gold, her latest African portrait series celebrates the magnificent beauty of our Rainbow Nation and the varied cultures in it. Each woman created in this series has delicate but deliberate individuality, honouring the ethnicity and differences of each culture while still respectfully and proudly knitting together the people of South Africa into one harmonious nation.

    Her latest African portraits are truly beautiful to behold.

  • South African artist Jen Adam started her working career in the creative industries. A self-taught artist, Jen Adam started out as a cceramist artist but later started to paint seriously and found that her paintings sold as fast as she could paint them. To admire her warm and soulful ethnic artworks on canvas is to experience a spiritual journey into Africa. Her art depicts women and children walking through vast, arid, glowing landscapes captures the pure innocence of rural Africa at its best: a dry, hot and at times barren land that is nevertheless emotionally and spiritually rich, with its diverse cultures, rural people and magnificent fiery sunrises and sunsets. 

    In her African paintings, the women almost always have a thin flowing white fabric draped over their clothing, a symbol of the emotional and spiritual strength these women have in the face of extreme poverty and adversity in their humble lives. 

    Etched against the burning earth, these silhouettes capture our imagination, bringing positive energy and tranquillity to the viewer, allowing us a warm and spontaneous invitation to dream whilst listening quietly and capturing the mood.
