(Dave Tomlinson)

The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery gets 2016 off to a good start with three new sculpture pieces by well-known sculpture Dave Tomlinson.

Tomlinson’s interest in sculpture started as a diversion from the pressures of life in the advertising world. Encouraged by his mentor, the late Everard Read, he became a full-time sculptor. He chose this medium as his love for the third dimensional form could embrace nature, with wildlife being the focus.

As a South African he has a passion for wide, open spaces and a love for the bush. Working in bronze allows for a greater feeling of freedom, and he is fascinated by the thought that he can give his clients feelings of peace and happiness when remembering the cameos of their own experiences in the bush.

The Elizabeth Gordon Gallery is situated at 120 Florida Road. For further information phone 031 303 8133, fax 031 303 8136, email: or visit
