Skyscrapers (2009)

Janice Rabie is a South African artist who lives and works in Cape Town.


She is a graduate of the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town, where she majored in sculpture. Since then she has worked as a ceramicist, producing both functional ware and sculpture. Her work sells nationally and abroad.


In 2007 she turned her attention to painting and this swiftly became a consuming passion. The subjects of the paintings are mountains, skyscrapers and other buildings, monumental structures which hold a powerful fascination for her.


Juxtaposing these natural and man-made elements is symbolic of an eternal quest to harmonise the opposites, an important principle in all areas of life.
