Island life at Irma Stern

19 February 2016

Boston-based photographer Tessa Frootko Gordon is holding an exhibition titled Days of The Iguana at the Irma Stern Museum. It features images from Grenada in the West Indies, which resonate with those of Irma Stern, known for her colourful paintings of people, landscapes and flowers encountered on her travels throughout Africa.

Says Gordon: “I have long had a fascination with the heat, mysterious light and vibrant colour of the tropics. I see many similarities between my homeland of South Africa and Grenada, similarities in landscape, geography, politics and the influence of British colonialism.”

The exhibition closes on 5 March. Read more on the Irma Stern Museum website.
