Noel Hodnett studied under Brian Bradshaw at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, and was a member of the Grahamstown Group from 1969 to 1978. The artist’s distinctive powerfully charged and richly descriptive landscapes demonstrate his virtuosity as a painter. Through close observation of nature, particularly the Eastern Cape vegetation to which he responded so passionately, his rich palette and luxuriant paint application, the artist creates a poetic painterly idiom and uniquely personal means of expression.
