“Sunset over Table Mountain” Fumiko Egawa
Institution: St. George’s University
Dimensions: 12 x 5/8 x 9
Artist Statement: I am currently a first year medical student at St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies.
In 2010, I taught English to high school students in the Khayelitsha township of Cape Town. Returning from a trip to the Cape of Good Hope, I was enthralled with the beauty of Table Mountain’s profile in contrast with the urban sprawl of informal settlements. That Sunday evening drive inspired me to paint one of my favorite memories of South Africa.
