Lugard’s Falls

The water travels through East Tsavo. In the Galana River. It eventually gets to Lugards Falls. The sand, the trees, the cliffs, they all watch as it plummets down into the canyon. Col. Lugard used to write to his girlfriend from here every morning. He was desperately in love with her, despite her being so far away, back home in England. He was saving to buy her a ring and ask her for her hand in marriage. One day he received a letter from her saying she had met someone else back home and was leaving him. She asked him to stop writing and sending the letters. That morning, as the sun rose and painted the cliffs orange, he walked out into the river to be swallowed by the raging torrent.

A New Dawn
Original Oil on Canvas
40cm x 50cm

The 21st of November this year - I was sitting on a step in South Africa when the news came through that the President of Zimbabwe, 37 years in, had resigned. I’ve painted these rocks, so typical of the hills in the South of Zimbabwe. They are the building blocks of an empire. They have weathered his dictatorship as have the people. It felt like someone was suddenly standing taller than the sky, waving a flag, saying come home. There is an incredible sense of hope. Its explosive. Suddenly it feels like there isn’t going to be enough paint.
