Janice Rabie is a South African painter who lives and works in Cape Town. The subjects of her paintings are mountains, skyscrapers and other buildings, monumental structures which hold a powerful fascination for her. Painting in oils is an inner compulsion. She is a graduate of the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town.


The closer he came to this deceptive image of the island’s shore,
the more this image receded; it continued to flee from him, and
he knew not what to think of this flight.
