Upright Gallery I Greg Lourens

Visit website

3 Barclay Terrace,

If the Aborigines believe that having a photograph taken of themselves will steal their souls, then it would be fair to say that the pencil and charcoal drawings of Greg Lourens will restore and magnify the souls of both his subject and his audience.

Greg Lourens has been quietly working on his own for the past 18 years fine tuning his craft and building up a substantial body of work.

His drawings which take up to three months to complete, are modern icons. Not icons in the religious understanding, but rather spiritual, in that they invite the viewer to stop and encounter themselves and humanity at a deeper level.

As a South African, he draws on his experiences of living in Africa amoungst truly amazing people embracing the diversity of different cultures.
