Merle Willmore (Thokozili) by Alan Lewis

I was inspired by some outside influence to develop a style that would take me away from the close parameters of academia and express my strong spiritual instincts in my paintings. I wanted to create images that evoked a mood and a message that would encourage the observer to look deeply into the painting and search for the hidden elements therein. My paintings have allowed me to leave the humdrum of everyday life for a brief period and I hope that you enjoy looking into them. In short my work could best be described as falling into the genre of - ‘Esoteric Camouflage Art.’
I hope you enjoy my work - Merle
(Thokozili - meaning The happy One).
