Title: “Petrolstasie, Carolina”, by Andries Bezuidenhout, oil on canvas, 76x91cm, 2016
A filling station at Carolina, a town in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province. The name Mpumalanga refers to the place where the sun rises. This scene is at sunset. Carolina, traditionally a maize farming area, is surrounded by coal mines. At some stage the town’s water was so acidic that it became unsuitable for residents to use for washing.
