The quirky, neat, exquisite still-lifes by Susan Davies, playful with perspective, bold in colour, and beautifully, temptingly tactile, have seldom appeared on the secondary market. After glancing at any of her pictures, it should come as little surprise that the artist studied under Jack and Jane Heath at the University of Natal (1963-1966), and has subsequently taught and painted alongside Jinny Heath in Pietermaritzburg.
