"Sentinels" by Pamela Benporath

Sentinels by Pamela Benporath

DURBAN HARBOUR, Ethekwini, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

29°52'0" S : 31°1'0" E

This body of work explores the view from my studio, looking out over the 4th largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere, operating 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day, handling over 30 million tons of cargo a year, from about 4500 commercial vessels per year* - it never sleeps!

Despite this bustling activity and never ending action in the harbor, it and the city come across almost docile and silent. The ever-changing weather, light, atmosphere, clouds, sunrises and sunsets offers a lifetime’s worth of opportunities for sketching and painting this one subject. I look forward to seeing how this body of work develops.
