WISHLIST: A Mixed-bag of Goodies by Jeanne Gaigher

Our next guest curated WISHLIST comes curtesy of Cape Town painter Jeanne Gaigher, who blasted onto the contemporary art scene this year with a near sold out debut solo exhibition at Smith Gallery and presentation at the FNB JoburgArtFair. Jeanne’s paintings are strongly evocative and capture a distinct moody atmosphere. Using layers of paint, scrim mesh and layered printing techniques, Jeanne’s work speaks to the permeability of time and the fluidity of experience. Her all-local list of covetable gifts includes quite a range of things, from high fashion items to woven tapestries and fiery ginger beer. Take a look below:  

1/ A piece from Lukhanyo Mdingi’s Taintless collection. It would be fantastic if I could wear it all.


2/ I’m slowly but surely building up my Jungle Jim collection; a bimonthly African pulp fiction magazine.


3/ Bluetooth speaker form Shibby Beats made from walnut wood. It boasts clear, quality sound and naturally enhanced bass.


4/ A luxe handwoven towel for the beach from Mungo.


5/ Playfully psychedelic wallpaper by artist Marlene Steyn.


6/ A handwoven tapestry from The Kraal Gallery in Stellenbosch. 


7/ This bed-cum-hideout by David Krynauw


8/ An endless supply of Dragon Fiery Ginger Beer for the summer.
