A SOLO EXHIBITION BY JEFF RANKIN  –  30 YEARS IN THE EASTERN CAPE

Metaphor, satire, and the crafted image conspire subconsciously to form Jeff Rankin’s visual language, through which the artist tells visual stories based on South Africa’s unsettled social landscape. In 1993 Jeff semigrated with his family, from KZN to the Eastern Cape. The move coincided with South Africa’s transition to a hopeful democracy. Thirty years have elapsed, and now seemed as perfect a time as any to celebrate these 30 years of creative work. Soon after the move, the artist revisited his early love of woodcut. Working out of a dark field, as you do with the relief mediums, worked well in Jeff’s case.
